The online bastion of information and sometimes misinformation, Wikipedia, is no longer allowed as a source for students at Vermont's Middlebury College. Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia -- but it lets anyone with enough knowledge to go online to edit or add items to its database. That can lead to more than a few mistakes. Surprisingly, the Wikipedia Foundation supports the college's ban.
