Which of course is absurdly incorrect:
Wikipedia wrote:Conflict of interest (COI) editing involves contributing to Wikipedia about yourself, family, friends, clients, employers, or your financial and other relationships. Any external relationship can trigger a conflict of interest. That someone has a conflict of interest is a description of a situation, not a judgement about that person's opinions, integrity, or good faith.
COI editing is strongly discouraged on Wikipedia. It undermines public confidence and risks causing public embarrassment to the individuals and companies being promoted. Editors with a COI are sometimes unaware of whether or how much it has influenced their editing. If COI editing causes disruption, an administrator may opt to place blocks on the involved accounts.
"Financial" is literally listed *AFTER* friends.
Omgwtfbbqsomethingrandom's "interpretation" is a deliberately mendacious misreading.

Yes, I have to say, despite my previous reservations, that auxy won the day. Thanks!
Really, now that I realize it, auxy's approach was what managed to elicit the whole bit about how this nominator knew Scott!
Either they thought better of their initial impulse, or despite their (false) protestations, they knew this was going to cost them credibility.
So, despite my cautioning auxy to back off, I guess I should have. Auxy had it well in hand.
