Many articles on wikipedia are erroneous anyway. I tried to modify a couple
but have not mastered it. Too many people on wikipedia have their facts
wrong when they write up plant articles.
I think that Roland and others in favour of using face book are talking of
chit-chat with snapshots, which is  not meant to compete with the library
qualities of the wiki as it exists now, and do not need to be search able.
