More Wikipedia Errors

In the latest series of errors at Wikipedia it posted claims that both Senators Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd had died at Obama's post-inaugural luncheon.

I noticed an error in the Wikipedia entry on "Juan Diaz de Solis". It presented him as Spanish by birth. Of course he was born a Portuguese and like Magalhaes (Magellan) defected to the service of Spain. I pointed out the error as well as the very outdated references cited. Instead of correcting the error I was chastized for not following the "rules" imposed in writing something in Wikipedia. Apparently the people who run the outfit are more worried about form than content, more concerned with procedure than with the truth.
