You are correct, as it is an internal proxy for SingNet. That said there is no global block 220.255.2.152. Presumably it is a local block at one of the wikis, so you will need to ask there. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:30, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Status:    Not done

Description, evidence, diffs, etc.

THIS IS AN "IP" OF A US PUBLIC LIBRARY, LOCATED IN BROWARD COUNTY - FLORIDA. PLEASE CONTACT THE LIBRARY MANAGER: IT IS AGAINST THE US LAW TO BLOCK A PUBLIC SERVICE. USER VITUZZU SEEMS TO PLAY WITH THIS SERVICE AND HAS BLOCKED IT UNTIL "20121219203546".This is a repetition of an unanswered question done last october 6, 2012 and archived after a few days with only a strange comment.User:Vituzzu has been accused of similar wrongdoing in the Italian wikipedia (and even processed there for his reelection as sysop). The preceding unsigned comment was added by 96.46.249.211 (talk • contribs) 16:15, 10 November 2012‎ (UTC)
This IP is blocked for being abused by the long-term vandal Brunodam. So unblocking is not a good idea imho. Trijnsteltalk 16:20, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
Who is Brunodam? This request is done by a US public library manager.
And, Wikimedia has the legal right, as a private website, to restrict anyone from accessing any part of its websites, so it was perfectly legal for Vituzzu to block it.--Jasper Deng (talk) 20:44, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
I hardly believe "a US public libray manager" would have done the same writing mistakes of Brunodam's. --Vituzzu (talk) 23:03, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Hello, I received twice the following message when editing fr.wiki from my smartphone :


Votre adresse IP a été bloquée sur tous les wikis. Le blocage a été fait par Bastique (meta.wikimedia.org). Le motif donné est Cross-wiki spam: Amazon Web Services - Service has been used for trojan/spam attacks - Little or no good edits - Please email info@wikimedia.org if you are affected by this block. Début du blocage: 21 juillet 2010 à 03:03 Expiration du blocage: infinity Vous pouvez contacter Bastique pour discuter du blocage. Vous ne pouvez pas utiliser la fonctionnalité "Envoyer un courriel" à moins d'avoir spécifié une adresse de courriel valide dans vos préférences de compte et de n'avoir pas bloqué son utilisation. Votre adresse IP actuelle est 79.125.4.70. Veuillez inclure tous les détails ci-dessus dans toutes les demandes que vous ferez.


This is a 3G IP from the french mobile operator Free. Many people are impacted.

I tried to contact Bastique on his talk page but it seem he retired.

Can you please unblock this address ?

Since all customers of this ISP use the IP to access the internet, the global block affects everyone who tries to edit Wikimedia. --chinneeb-talk 09:50, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Wouldn't this just be an individual user of that ISP? Usually, each ISP customer has a unique IP address within a range owned by that ISP. Is this not the case in Mongolia?—68.208.127.1 19:05, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
No, users get addresses by DHCP, which is then NATed to the outside world via a pool of addresses owned by the ISP. The addresses seem to be periodically changed, though, mine has changed (so I can edit again), but I presume the users who've gotten the blocked address now won't be able to edit. --chinneeb-talk 06:22, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
I have removed the global block BUT please would you be so kind to contact your ISP and point them to http://www.stopforumspam.com/ipcheck/180.235.163.20 and ask them to attend to the problem of the spammer. If the spamming restarts, then we will need to block it again. — billinghurst sDrewth 06:56, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Closing as done, though would like contact with ISP to occur. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:53, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

It is unusual for editors to be operating from a web server, and the security seems to have been broken at a point on the server[2] in July, August and September.
