"Paul Williams, volunteers director at Wikimedia UK, the British arm  
of the American company, said: "Sock-puppeting is a very serious  
offence for anybody. But for someone on the Arbitration Committee it  
is even more so. It can result in a lifetime ban. The problem with  
Wikipedia is that you can hide behind user names, but there is an  
expectation that you don't write for self-interest. In this case  
there is a conflict of interest.""
