Wikipedia is quite valuable but the articles can be written and edited by anyone, and there is no expert checking or monitoring. I can post on Wikipedia that Barack Obama is the illegitimate son of the Queen of Sheba and Franklin Roosevelt, and it will stay there unless someone comes along and changes it.

In other words, use Wikipedia as background or supportive information, never as a first or only source.
