I hear many people say that paid editing is not a problem. There is no good estimate of how many companies use paid editing services, how many individuals provide these services, or how much time Wikipedia community volunteers invest in providing support to paid editors. I would like to hear thoughts from others, determine what data we have and what data we are missing, and make the best guess we can make about how big the paid editing problem is. Is this 100 companies a year? 1,000? 10,000? Let's see how much we agree or disagree. Blue Rasberry (talk) 21:16, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
