    Re: Lunar Distance in Wikipedia
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2007 Jul 25, 08:00 +0100

    We havent seen Renee Mattie's name in the list for a time, so it's a
    pleasure to welcome her back, and note her amendment to that Wikipedia
    entry.
    
    She wrote-
    
    | I have dipped our toe in the water, so to speak.  I am "SV Resolution"
    | at Wikipedia, and have made a slight improvement to the wording of the
    | example under "Theory".  I challenge you all to improve that section
    | beyond all recognition.  Sign up, log in, rock out.  Don't all jump in
    | at once, now.
    |
    | Renee
    
    And I see that her toe-dipping, and her invitation, have triggered some more
    attention to the Wikipedia entry on lunar distance, from Frank Reed, and
    maybe others will join in. So perhaps we will get a somewhat more expert
    entry on that topic than in the past.
    
    Unless, that is, it suffers from the further tinkerings of well-meaning, but
    ill-informed contributors, that seem to have bedevilled it recently.
    
    This is the first time I've really delved into Wikipedia, and I am not very
    impressed. Its intentions may be good, but there seems no way to prevent it
    becoming a highly-efficient conduit for misinformation.
    
    George.
