I received an infraction today form the lovely people at serebiiforums. Reason: spamming. I used a Wikipedia entry, oh no.

WTF!!!???!!!

Wikipedia is constantly monitored by people who would change something if it was not right. So how does that make it unreliable?

    Lol, Serebii. :( I have no idea how forums so strict could still be so... spammy. I've never been able to handle those forums. Just not my thing. <_<

    That is a little bit harsh...
    Seriously, why would one put restrictions on linking to Wikipedia? It may be unreliable; but then again, so is the rest of the internet. -.-

    Dude, Wikipedia is against the rules. It's like Fight Club. You can't talk about it.

    That makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. The rule, that is.

    Yeah that is a little weird. That proves that Serebii is a tad bit too strict. Wikipeda isn't a reliable source. But there is no reason for them to infract you because Wikipeda is consider spam. That is stupid. Oh well..

    ...Which is exactly the reason why I left Serebiiforums to come here.

    The Mods are extremely strict and are always biased in their decisions.

    Oh, l-o-l (thank you to BeachBoy for pointing me here), this is exactly why I left serebii. Their forums were too strict. >.>

    One of the mods even told me that my 'description reeked of utter fail'. . =( That really wasn't a nice way of putting it. (Luckily I've worked on it, though. =P).
