Yup! Anybody can say anything about anything, so two different sources may 
say two things that cannot be true at the same time. The architecture even 
supports lying. So, you get a trust problem, and even with that, people 
have been known to hold opinions that are plain illogical, so the linked 
data work reflects the real world. But now, we can run a reasoner over it 
and see. :-)
