Wikipedia has a large range of T-mobile IPs blocked until 2024.

I really don't trust them as a source since the "admins" spend a disproportionate amount of time blocking people and leaving punitive messages.

There are also some questionably antisemitic articles like "Jews in Finance".

I'm just not a fan of Wiki sites or the man who founded them!

why wouldn't you trust them? there are sources linked at the bottom of every article.

Many are broken links that don't get replaced.

The whole point is that no original claims are made and Wikipedia is just a summary of secondary sources. If you care enough, maybe you could help edit to reach that ideal.

i'd find it more useful for things like "List of people who played for sports team" or "List of presidents of a country" rather than some sort of topic that is contentious like conspiracy theories or political stuff.

i don't know what you're looking for on wikipedia, but you can always be part of the solution to something rather than complain about it.
