We all do. Hence so many changes to it. I noticed lots of articles about living individuals (celebrities etc) have disappeared in the last few years, presumably because of the strict rules on biographical material - a necessity when threats of legal action are frequent and heavy-handed US laws end up governing the rest of the world. On top of which, copyright law is a confusing minefield, though sometimes amusing (for example, the monkey selfie issue of 2014, prompting satire and legal clarification which is itself entertaining).
Articles change all the time. Some of my own edits to articles have been removed for spurious reasons. I saw an interesting bit of text today in the Booker Group article which will no doubt disappear before long (highlighted in the third screenshot).
