60 Percent of Wikipedia Entries about Companies Contain Errors

All those mistakes are surely a mix of simple errors and straight-up sabotage, however the really discouraging findings come in the form of user support: Over 40 percent of the 1,284 people in the survey waited days before hearing a response to their requests for corrections: 24 percent never heard back at all.
