Conflicts of Interest
There is a discussion going on at  regarding COI editing. I don't think a requirement to disclose goes far enough. The whole concept of being paid to edit Wikipedia on behalf of a client or employer is an inherent COI and should be banned outright.
A number of my past (and present) employers have wikipedia articles about them. I recuse myself from editing any of these, to avoid any possible COI:
- Public Health Research Institute
- New York University School of Medicine
- EMC Corporation
I am a member of Harlem Yacht Club. I am not an employee or otherwise compensated by the club. I have, however, created an alternate account, User:RoySmith-HYC. Should I decide to do any editing of material related to the club, I will use that account to emphasize the COI relationship.
I also have created User:RoySmith-Mobile. I use this on mobile devices and other insecure locations, where I don't want to login using my admin credentials.
