For someone in the public eye, no matter how properly they behave, a person with an axe to grind can always spin an appearance of impropriety.

"The self-promotional aspect here (the degree to which MonmouthpediAis clearly used by Roger has a way to advance his personal career) is real and somewhat unsavory. Serving on a board of a non-profit oughtto be done first and foremost to serve that organization's objectives,not to promote separate business goals."

That is simply nonsense. There was no need to instrumentalise Wikipedia as a marketing tool for third parties to use, to sell the project as such, and to derive personal income from these projects.
