Discussion is invited on the subject of whether wikipedia quotes should be allowed in here versus source material (non-derived). IMO it should not be allowed because of inaccuracies in most wikipedia material. It is open source and thus often tertiary or even further derived from the source material that produced it due to extensive edits not to mention vandalism and purposeful alterations. In this forum accurate historical and current affairs citations are of considerable value and importance so that's why I broach the topic.
Wikipedia is NOT accepted as an authoritative citable source in many instances and why not this forum as well. We can improve quality of posts here by disallowing it. But this is just my opinion and users here are welcome to discuss this.
