 Has Wikipedia ever retracted

Frequently, I think. Isn't the whole point that it can be edited and updated continually, unlike a printed book?

And isn't the whole point of my rant (resisting the temptation to type this next phrase in upper case) the fact that *anyone* can amend *anything* in any Wikipedia article, with nobody questioning the amendment until someone notices the inaccuracy? As far as I'm concerned, that renders it potentially 100% unreliable. If it leads you to a source that you trust, well and good. But you could have found that source yourself.
