Tom, I'm not criticising you. I very often edit wikipedia to de-stress or
whilst trying to resolve more difficult problems. The problem of
demarcation can be a tricky one as to which task you are doing if you
resolve one problem whilst doing another. If its a pure 9 to 5 job then it
can be simpler, but many of us are finding a working day somewhere outside
the hours of sleep.

Hi Tom, being busy means I don't have time to
answer every email
immediately. As you can see I try and get there eventually.
Actually I think you'll find that questions can be both rhetorical and
facetious. However if I am creating or editting Wikipedia articles then
can be sure that I am not being paid and its in
my own time.
I often do work for my employer outside of regular office hours. It
is (in theory!) my own time and I don't get paid any extra for it.
That doesn't mean I'm not working for my employer when I'm doing that
work. Demarcation between paid and voluntary work isn't as simple as
the clock striking 5pm.
