I don't think it's expressly forbidden, 'frowned upon' would be the words
I'd use. Apart from that, I have a feeling this whole thread is a storm in
less than a glass of water. Odesk is a system where people can offer or
take jobs. Wikimedia uses it (though in a somewhat different way). How on
Earth do those two facts imply "Odesk is probably used for paid editing"?
