lol. i know the convo is over, but i'd like to clear up that i'm not writing a fcking dissertation or a final paper, it's a two page history essay that my teacher is going to 'grade' by having a TA skim over it. i don't get the big deal.
my english teacher once tried to teach us that wikipedia is Evil because anyone could edit it by editing a page with blatantly false information. she got banned from editing wiki and the false info was removed.
