Spammers[edit]

Where / to whom can I report comment spammers on the official Wikimedia blog so as to have them removed? Thanks. DS (talk) 01:41, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

@DragonflySixtyseven: Sorry for the delay. The blog team usually handles these. Joe Sutherland (WMF) (talk) 14:03, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Just in case[edit]

I blocked a user account going by the name Center for Regulatory Effectiveness ([1]), which according to google is a US Congress organization. I do not have the ability to look at ISP addresses, but just to be safe I want to report this here in the event that the account has an ISP address going back to a US Government group.

Current sensitive IP's list[edit]

ComCom - do you have a master list of current "sensitive IP's"? On enwiki we appear to have fragmented to multiple lists (see w:en:Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#51.171.156.10). — xaosflux Talk 01:14, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Is this page being monitored? — xaosflux Talk 18:53, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi @Xaosflux: Thanks for reaching out, and sorry for the delay. I'm Sam from the Communications team at the Foundation, and I also serve as one of the list admins for ComCom. As far as I know, ComCom does not have a master list of current sensitive IP's beyond the information that is presented on this meta page. I'm speaking with a couple other folks to confirm, will get back to you soon once I have more information. Thanks. SLien (WMF) (talk) 00:48, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, see also w:en:User_talk:Mdennis_(WMF)#Sensitive_IP_Addresses (feel free to continue this conversation there) and w:en:Wikipedia:Blocking_IP_addresses#Sensitive_IP_addresses. My suggestion is that if WMF wants to enforce this notification as a policy for local projects, they should take ownership of the criteria (the list to match). — xaosflux Talk 01:08, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the additional context. I spoke with a couple folks at the Foundation and confirmed we don't currently have a master list. I'm also chatting with a few other folks within my team to determine the best way to structure tracking/notifications of sensitive IP blocks for ComCom moving forward. Will keep you posted on the those conversations and share updates as soon as I have more information. SLien (WMF) (talk) 01:59, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
SLien (WMF) any update? — xaosflux Talk 00:25, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
Xaosflux, I posted a reply here to consolidate the conversation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Mdennis_(WMF)#Sensitive_IP_Addresses. Thanks. SLien (WMF) (talk) 17:24, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
