The major databases will continue to be riddled with errors …databases will make no (serious) effort to fix these 7
No major database effort will adopt wikis 8
Why take wikis seriously?
Wikipedia takes the scientific literature seriously

We should follow MSW3, as it is what is used in nearly all other mammal articles on Wikipedia. UtherSRG (talk)

Yes, contradiction, because I *had* listed macrocephalus as a synonym. … So, since you say that that is acceptable, I'll restore it to be that way. - UtherSRG (talk)
That's not what I said you fucking piece of shit. I'm reverting it back to macrocephalus asshole. Damn you fucking cunt. Jonas Poole (talk)
Wow. Seriously consider taking a Wikivacation to cool off, man. Your heat is way above this conflict. - UtherSRG (talk)

I love Wikipedia…
… Wikipedia doesn’t love me.

Information wants to be free.
Information wants to be expensive.
Data providers such as Thomson Reuters (Index of Organism Names) will continue to clutch to debilitating notions of “intellectual property” 9
