Google is casually dumping Wikipedia content on search pages, not carefully enough –¬†When you reference Wikipedia, there might be a few or many authors. With AIs now, it is possible to process a Wikipedia page and give a “quality of reference” indicator. And, where there are just a few authors and they are not readily verifiable, or where there are flags or issues, some warning or flags can be provided. You are giving these Wikipedia articles and snips ‘top of page’ visibility. And zero indicator of quality.
