Wikipedia woes

with one comment

I have had a link to my “comprehensive guide to safety-razor shaving” and the “beginning shaving kit” in the Wikipedia articles on “Shaving” and “Razor” for quite a while, and I regularly get hits from that source. Well, the editors decided to redo those sections, and now the links are gone and the “references” section somehow locked up. Worse, in “Shaving” the person who wrote it gives bad advice: a strictly two-pass shave: with the grain and against the grain, with no idea of progressive stubble reduction or the possibility of an across-the-grain pass.

I’m disappointed because I think the guide has good information for shavers—better information, in fact, than the Wikipedia article provides. I left a note in the “discussion” page for each section, but I fear the Wikipedia reference is gone.

  1. For shame! I found your blog through that Wikipedia link and now check it regularly just to check in on the life of Leisure Guy. You even convinced me to learn the art of the traditional wetshave.
