Re: [Wikimedia-l] Paid editing v. paid advocacy (editing)

 On the other hand, a paid advocate may perhaps be more concerning from a

I've heard that before from Wikipedians. However, it does not match
with what communication professionals keep telling me. Even larger
companies with solid communication departments are usually not in a
place to spend enough ressources to correct their articles beyond
basic facts. Many of them tried (directly and/or through talk pages)
but gave up at some point. For companies engaging with Wikipedia can
be terribly time-consuming - especially if they want to do it right.
