I too was recently wondering how Wikipedia is a site referred by every second person I come across but what's the evidence that all of it is genuine when it is a set of info provided by people like you and me!
But the review by this Simson Garfinkel person is pretty much acceptable.

P.S.- is it just me or does this name actually sound familiar..
"I am a rock"
Simon and Garfunkel kill!
