In fact, their conflict of interest guidelines actually encourage experts,
though this gets lost in the noise.

From the section on Close Relationships:
"...An expert on climate change is welcome to contribute to articles on
that subject, even if that editor is deeply committed to it. As a rule of
thumb, the more involved you are in a particular area in real life, the
more careful you should be to adhere to our core content policies 
Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, Wikipedia:No original research, and
Wikipedia:Verifiability  when editing in that area. Closeness to a
subject does not mean you're incapable of being neutral, but it may
incline towards bias."
