Here on Best Thinking, everyday throughout November, I am publishing a newly busted myth, or newly discovered fallacy, which is currently being disseminated by the on-line encyclopedia known as Wikipedia.
I am highlighting Wikipedia’s unreliability and dreadful quality of information in protest against its deliberate policy of facilitating and refusing to halt engaging in stealth plagiarism of information from the unique work of expert authors.
At the time of writing, Wikipedia’s senior editors refuse to cite Best Thinking as a reliable source, yet Wikipedia regularly plagiarizes the original content on this site to pass-off my unique myth busting discoveries as though they are discoveries made by its own replicators who refer to themselves collectively as ‘Wikipedians’. Wikipedia passively sanctions this self-serving fraudulent behavior in order to conceal its unreliability and pervasive myth-mongering. (Click here: for the full story).
'The highest proportion of pale malts results in a lighter color.[The term "pale ale" first appeared around 1703 for beers made from malts dried with coke which resulted in a lighter color than other beers popular at that time. Different brewing practices and hop levels have resulted in a range of taste and strength within the pale ale family.'
Unsurprisingly, since almost all its pages disseminate utter claptrap, Wikipedia is wrong again! This time the inexpert encyclopedia that is not fit for purpose is out by 28 years.Because, with the greatest of irony, the term actually appears in an etymological dictionary 28 years earlier than those sober minded yet slip-shod Wikipedians believe it was first used.
