Ovipedia

Ovipedia

One of the most popular sites on the web is Wikipedia , but it has one drawback: it wants to be balanced and neutral.

OviPedia, on the other hand, is our very own encyclopaedia and it is filled with biased, emotional and unbalanced entries about a growing range of topics. We want opinion-based articles in this section that will trigger discussion, debate and argument

Wikipedia doesn't like statements and claims that have not yet been fully cited, while OviPedia thrives upon it. The material in this section is true according to the belief and viewpoint of the writer, so don't use it as a research tool - only a tool to fire up discussion.
