Wikimedia Employee Fired Over Paid Editing

Rumors of stuff like this have been floating around forever about Wikipedia. So, when someone is actually caught doing it, there really isn't any choice but to let them go.

I'm writing to let you know that Sarah Stierch is no longer an employee of the Wikimedia Foundation. The Wikimedia Foundation has recently learned that Sarah has been editing Wikipedia on behalf of paying clients, as recently as a few weeks ago. She did that even though it is widely known that paid editing is frowned upon by many in the editing community and by the Wikimedia Foundation.
