(Note that this article reproduces parts of the corresponding Wikipedia entry. While as a general rule I believe we shouldn't copy content from Wikipedia, this case is exceptional, since I myself wrote that entry. This is also the case for a few other entries, though I currently don't remember which.)

What's the reason for the general recommendation against copying from Wikipedia?

The main reasons are that often I would expect Wikipedia articles to not be a particularly good fit (because they have different evidential standards, because we want to emphasize the way the topic relates to EA); that sometimes their articles are low quality, are biased, or both (though this would provide a reason only in these specific cases); that Wikipedia requires (I believe) the display of a notice in articles that reuse its content; and that I feel this won't look good if we do it regularly.

Do you think we should consider using their content more?
