Sutton's Mythbusting Protest. Wikipedia Myth Number 27. The Nerd Myth

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 first documented appearance of the word "nerd" is as the name of a creature in Dr. Seuss's book If I Ran the Zoo (1950).'

Fact

The word nerd appeared in print at least 151 years earlier than the current nonsense published by Wikipedia See: Ouseley (1799) pages 85 and 86     .
