Think of it as Wikipedia's police department hotline. The "encyclopedia anyone can edit" includes a page where you can instantly alert the site's brain trust to foul play. It's called the "Conflict of Interest Noticeboard. If you suspect someone has rigged the system, using the encyclopedia to push their own agenda, this is where you turn.

But there's a catch. One of the site's leading administrators bears an extreme conflict of interest, but you can't expose him from the Conflict of Interest Noticeboard. He created the Conflict of Interest Noticeboard.
