    Someone was tampering with Wikipedia again in regards to the season 2 finale. I called it total bullshit and removed it from the site for the good of the community. The link that went to Zap2it didn't even exist.

    The person titled the so-called episode as "Death". The gramma of the description was poor and far too long to even be a Zap2it description.

    As I said before, I removed it for the sake of the community and because it didn't make any sense to me.

    Remember, people, never trust a thing Wikipedia says because it can be edited by ANYONE, anywhere, anytime.

    I think we know not to trust Wikipedia.

    Some of those descriptions and episode ideas sound like a 5-year-old came up with them.

    She's not a bro, but sometimes people don't know or just want to remind folks, no damage.

    Thanks sp for removing that and letting everybody know.

    And this is why you can't trust any Wiki.

    Except TFWiki, I've never seen any poor grammar or false information on there. Ever.

    While Wikipedia can be edited, I still consider it a useful method for obtaining information, especially if there's a credible source attached to it.

    Hell, you can't even add image captions without adding some information with them.

    True, I've never found any mis-info there.

    They do a great job keeping that site accurate.:thumb

    While I fully agree that Wikipedia and other similar sites should never be trusted in these kinds of situations....I honestly don't see the need for a thread dealing with it, let alone one specific moment of Wiki falsehoods.

    That people, is irony...:rock

    Thanks for deleting the info.

    I think we all know not to trust a wiki without a source, so the discussion seems done.
