Citizendium


So, can Citizendium do what everyone worries that Wikipedia isn't doing? Will they be able to ensure their information is credible?


It seems that their premise is that they hope to attract a "better crowd."
They state: "We're collegial."
The Free Dictionary says collegial is defined as:
Characterized by or having power and authority vested equally among colleagues.

But then again, the free dictionary might not be reliable.

So, are those contributing to Wikipedia inequal?

Yes, absolutely. This question can only come from someone who has not spent considerable time on Wikipedia.

You are correct. I have NOT spent considerable time on Wikipedia. Just enough to see the opinions of many and then perform actual research on my own. Although, one's view of "inequal" is certainly arbitrary, no?
PS- I guess you won't be using the new option since being anonymous is your preference.
