Why is Wikipedia inaccurate?
Wikipedia is not a reliable source for citations elsewhere on Wikipedia. As a user-generated source, it can be edited by anyone at any time, and any information it contains at a particular time could be vandalism, a work in progress, or simply incorrect.

There are various measures taken by Wikipedia to prevent or reduce the amount of vandalism. These include: Using Wikipedia’s history functionality, which retains all prior versions of an article, restoring the article to the last version before the vandalism occurred; this is called reverting vandalism.
