I just surfed the web a bit regarding audio and video quality metrics and the like, when i stumbled over this wikipedia article. It is completely baffling. Not only that the overall quality of the writing is not very good and fit for an encyclopedia, it is filled with wrong claims and suggestive statements.

I say HA should try to improve this article, or better yet, do a complete rewrite! We can use our own HA wiki to draft our article, and push the final version to wikipedia after it is deemed finished. I think this is far better and easier than nitpicking and fixing all the statements in the wikipedia article proper. We cannot expect visitors here to be able to participate in the discussions and understand ToS#8 if articles like this are out there!

Well-done, guys. After my heated argument with some random editor regarding the foobar2000 page (see the Talk page if you really want to get into it), I was feeling a bit disenfranchised with Wikipedia. You guys have reassured me that yes, Wikipedia still has value and is not primarily a trolling platform.

*facepalm*

I mean, if the guy had just benchmarked his interpretation against the practice in the field (compare the Audacious, XMMS or even Winamp articles ...)

Expect a PM by the end of the night.
