[the following letters were received in response to an article in our October 2007 issue – Accuracy on Wikipedia]

Just a quick note about the Wendy’s Wikipedia entry you referenced. One of Wendy’s marketing taglines for the Baconator was “It can smell your fear.” I am guessing the entry with the similar phrasing was part of Wendy’s marketing campaign and was removed as per Wikipedia’s blatant advertising policy.

I thought it was a stupid tagline anyway. Enjoyed the article!

Just wanted to drop you a note about your article on Wikipedia in the Sept. issue of CertMag to say thanks for sharing that experience. I’ve always thought Wikipedia was a good source for information that was pretty accurate for the most part. Providing that additional insight into how the community editing works and self-regulated fact checking just adds to my sense of Wikipedia being a reliable source for information on the Web.

Thanks for sharing. Good stuff.
