This Site has often received criticism from commenters after making reference to Wikipedia for facts.

In the light of this decision, one wonders whether the online encyclopaedia’s critics are avid Mail readers.

Wikipedia editors have voted to ban the Daily Mail as a source for the website in all but exceptional circumstances after deeming the news group “generally unreliable”.

The editors described the arguments for a ban as “centred on the Daily Mail’s reputation for poor fact checking, sensationalism and flat-out fabrication”.
