Hello ginger and all,

Please read below the email I just received and let me know what action
should be made.

I think Isra is right at pointing this out. However it is obviously not for
2015 but we should consider using the direct link for 2016.

To whom it may concern,

my name is Isra and the reason I am sending this email is to suggest you
not to use Wikipedia as a source.

I was visiting http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2014/travel/index.html and I
saw that you have used http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schengen_Area as a
source. I would suggest you to remove it or replace it with

The reason I am suggesting to replace the Wikipedia link is that users may
be reading information that is outdated or that has been posted by someone
who is not an expert in the field or by someone who wishes to provide
misinformation. It states on its own disclaimer that information on
Wikipedia is contributed by anyone.

I hope you will get this as an advice and replace it.

Isra Flanagan
