Sutton's Mythbusting Protest. Wikipedia Myth Number 12. The Wikipedia Okay Fallacy

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 encyclopaedia 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).
On 12 November 2013 Wikipedia is publishing the fallacy by omission that an early date of the publication of the word okay is not discoverable.

The Wikipedia Okay Fallacy by Omission:

Unsurprisingly, reliably unreliable Wikipedia has zero information regarding what these possibilities are for the earliest known published use of the full word spelt 'okay' and where they are to be found.


The ID research method reveals that in the Google Library Project of 30 million books thepopular spelling of the full word “okay” can be found at least as early as 1924   
Boys' Life - Mar 1924 -     (Magazine) Page 31:
"Let's hear it, Carry." "Okay. You all know the beginning, how I've got it doped out that when Snell announces the line-up for the Wesley game, with my name ...”
