Open Dictionary

I don't know why this idea seems wierd to me ... I'm a big fan of Wikipedia, but a dictionary that anyone can add to just seems less trustworthy. Yep, Merriam-Webster has released an Open Dictionary:
[W]here you can 1) submit and share entries that aren't already in our Online Dictionary, and 2) browse entries submitted by other members of the Merriam-Webster Online community.
Interesting ... but ... call me old fashioned ... I want an authority figure telling me what the definition of a word is.

Comments:
you mean you haven't heard of wiktionary??
 
Actually, I have ... but I guess I think of M-W as an authoritative voice & allowing us to come in and add to the M-W dictionary seems ... wrong :) hehe
