The Wikipedia Conflict of Interest policy discourages those close to a topic from editing about that topic. This includes family, friends, employers, or other financial or personal relations to an article topic. This is a great opportunity to discuss the tendency for biases in our work, even when we do our best to avoid them. As this policy tries to make clear, "that someone has a conflict of interest is a description of a situation. It is not a judgment about that person's state of mind or integrity."
