No, the solution is to stop thinking of Wikipedia as the Source, the Big Stage, the Final Arbiter. It will fail at this and it will always fail at this as long as people get to undo the work of many others merely by being a persistent keyboard-pushing douchebag.

The most informative pages on Wikipedia are no longer the articles I find but the History pages. You can look at Patrick Moore’s page and see how the wiki-vultures flew in to stake their claim in editing in some critical details or the hundreds of absolutely essential cannot-be-lost details when Whitney Houston died. Wikipedia as a reference is a joke and the blame for that lies with the egomaniacs running the place.
