TIL, Wikipedia editors maintain a list of when (not) to consider a source reliable.

I was familiar with the guideline for sources that are (almost) entirely disallowed, [1] but this is a more elaborate and nuanced list. It's important to remember that our world is rarely boolean!

@krinkle +1 re: rarely boolean. My current quip is: "Every binary is actually an oversimplified spectrum"

@krinkle (I want to include an "[almost]" in there, but I'm trying to get past my dislike of absolutes, if it can make a quote flow better! E.g. my other frequent quip "Links or examples always helps!")
