Middlebury College is now banning students from citing Wikipedia (though not from looking at it), after a history professor caught his students soberly citing a glaring error in an article on Japanese history.

As an academic librarian I spent years trying to explain not only to the students but also to their professors why they shouldn't cite Wikipedia. So I have to admit that this NYT article, and the New Yorker retraction, really made my day.
