Wikipedia has enlightened me on a number of occasions; sometimes the info I found was useful(even crucial), and sometimes simply trivial. However, being a person that enjoys learning, I think its an amazing site (and that you can't have "pointless" info in an encyclopedia!). In the end, when one uses wikipedia one usually looks up something specific that interests them, so I guess it can hardly be pointless for that info to be there...

The good thing about wikipedia is that there will always be something on it about the subject your looking for. I sometimes used it for my college work and my tutor hated us using it, because it can be updated and have information added to it by any1 even me and you, so youve got to be careful of that, as the information may be false.

For somebody that would be looking specifically for that information it wouldn't be pointless, but if you are searching for something completely different then yes it would be pointless; but then you can still see that it isn't trying to tell you information about things you are looking for its telling you things that have a similar are of interest. So overall I would say that the information provided is relevant to the criteria that has been searched for.

Its good as a secondary resource, but not a primary.
