I think that's one of the site's charms.

It's the site's philosophy - and what makes it different from Wikipedia.

There is lot that distinguishes this site from Wikipedia. Start with size and range. There is no comparison. Let's get over it.

Would anyone ever buy a book of selected Wikipedia articles?

(Don't answer that - I bet they would buy anything)

Not interested in poetry? Just as you can't judge a book by the cover, you shouldn't judge it by its contents either smiley - winkeye

Some of Beatrice's Vogon poetry would go down well.

There once was a Vogon who wrote
Some poems that caught in my throat.
I choked in deep space,
And could not erase
The thought of that sad anecdote.

My copy arrived yesterday! Nicely produced. One oddity is the lack of page numbers on the contents pages.

One for the coffee table. Must get a coffee table.
