So, "real" reporters are now plagiarizing articles with material from
WIKIs. That's very dangerous.
... and what about the people who aren't online that have a better
grasp of a topic? They have no opportunity to contribute.
Particularly against an online system where anyone with a browser and
connection can rewrite history.
... and what about human nature? There will *always* be mischievous,
aggressive people who specifically take advantage of human/technical
vulnerabilities. They see an open door and they immediately think to
do something destructive.
Too many variables. I'm all for community journalism, but completely
open WIKIs don't seem like a good answer.
