Requests for global (un)block

Global block for 2001:1BB0:E000:1E::/64

Status:    Done

Proxies or a compromised hosting, see gucprefix:2001:1BB0:E000:1E:. Reverse-DNS hostnames like srv79-h-st.jino.ru and srv145-h-st.jino.ru are quite indicative. Please, hurry – ongoing abuse. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 13:25, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Global unblock (or reblock) for 85.26.164.190

Status:    Done

False block rationale – either unblock or reblock for a decent reason. The user’s conduct is consistent with a person using mobile Internet connection not very far from Samara, Russia – I am pretty sure that there are no open proxies or zombies on the IP. Moreover, I see that the user is for some reason feuding with the LTA Никита-Родин-2002 who uses the range reported just above. The blocking steward MarcoAurelio‎‎ was made aware of the situation twice, hence pinging is redundant. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:18, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Look… https://www.megarbl.net/asncheck/AS31133 has a list of five hundreds recent spammers from this autonomous system (the Volga Branch of OJSC MegaFon) – how many of them are blocked in Wikimedia? This recent list doesn’t include 85.26.164.190, yet a steward may block it for one damned year citing NOP. Is it a responsible network administration? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 16:05, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Cross wiki abuse; BLP violations. --Zaxxon0 (talk) 10:23, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

@Zaxxon0: if the IP range edits en.Wikipedia and Commons for a month without serious objections on either site, then is it a stewards’ busyness to block it? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:57, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
None of the contributions tools are loading so I can't see much of anything relating to this IP, but it seems to be editing on enwiki and commons, and this report is probably stale by now. If not, please provide some evidence. Thanks, – Ajraddatz (talk) 18:22, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

@Ilyas Marwat: Please be specific concerning what it is you want Stewards to do. I'm assuming that you want an unblock on the IP, correct? However, the IP is not Globally Blocked. Additionally, if it was blocked, the block should not be lifted, since the IP is an Open Proxy. You should request Global IP Block Exemption instead.

Global unblock for 151.48.0.0/17

Status:    Not done


Facts:13th june a steward (masti) blocked this italian ip range globally for six months with the motivation 'Cross-wiki spam: spambot'.There was not a spambot which is a computer making automatical spam edits but just a troll who abused account creation.The steward also blocked about twenty fake accounts created from that ip range whose only edits were message spamming in various wikipedias.I have seen that the messages were invitations to many users to join a votation in it.wikipedia.org which was closed short after so probably the abuser would have stopped anyway.But yet the block is still active for about 33000 ips until december.
Considerations:a globalization block is useful to protect wikipedia but this kind of block exceeds this need.It is excessive both because the abuser has apparently no more reasons to continue his abuse and because to stop his abuse it was sufficient preventing users from that ip range from creating new accounts instead of blocking completely the possibility to edit anything.I know that every block causes unavoidably some collateral damage but in this case the collateral damage is too high but most important it is not necessary.I would not be asking to unblock the ip range if the problem was a spambot or an anonymous user who spammed his messages from various ip addresses from this range.I am asking to unblock the ip range because the abuser used the new accounts he continued creating to spam messages.
Request:imho the most proper solution which both protects wikipedia from the abuser's possible return and makes the least possible collateral damage for the remaining 33000 innocent users is globally blocking new account creations but allowing editing from ips.In this way users can continue contributing anonymously and it would be even easier checking possible disruptive edits by keeping an eye on the ip range.Also consider that this italian ip range is maybe the most common provided by the telecommunication company 'Wind' and that a large part of italian contributors are currently prevented from editing for no justified reason.It is still possible that some users from this ip range will commit some abuse but no ip range contains zero percent of abuse and from this ip range no more abuse than from any other ip range is committed.You can check the contributions from the blocked ip range in it.wikipedia.org to verify my affirmation.So please review this six months global block and change its settings to allow normal users to make their usual constructive edits while preventing the abuser from creating new accounts.
LuluGigi (talk) 09:39, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

@LuluGigi: to “prevent the abuser from creating new accounts” namely an IP-only block has to stay in place; “normal users” can edit from their accounts. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:29, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Global unblock for 151.48.0.0/17

Status:    Not done


Facts:13th june a steward (masti) blocked this italian ip range globally for six months with the motivation 'Cross-wiki spam: spambot'.There was not a spambot which is a computer making automatical spam edits but just a troll who abused account creation.The steward also blocked about twenty fake accounts created from that ip range whose only edits were message spamming in various wikipedias.I have seen that the messages were invitations to many users to join a votation in it.wikipedia.org which was closed short after so probably the abuser would have stopped anyway.But yet the block is still active for about 33000 ips until december.
Considerations:a globalization block is useful to protect wikipedia but this kind of block exceeds this need.It is excessive both because the abuser has apparently no more reasons to continue his abuse and because to stop his abuse it was sufficient preventing users from that ip range from creating new accounts instead of blocking completely the possibility to edit anything.I know that every block causes unavoidably some collateral damage but in this case the collateral damage is too high but most important it is not necessary.I would not be asking to unblock the ip range if the problem was a spambot or an anonymous user who spammed his messages from various ip addresses from this range.I am asking to unblock the ip range because the abuser used the new accounts he continued creating to spam messages.
Request:imho the most proper solution which both protects wikipedia from the abuser's possible return and makes the least possible collateral damage for the remaining 33000 innocent users is globally blocking new account creations but allowing editing from ips.In this way users can continue contributing anonymously and it would be even easier checking possible disruptive edits by keeping an eye on the ip range.Also consider that this italian ip range is maybe the most common provided by the telecommunication company 'Wind' and that a large part of italian contributors are currently prevented from editing for no justified reason.It is still possible that some users from this ip range will commit some abuse but no ip range contains zero percent of abuse and from this ip range no more abuse than from any other ip range is committed.You can check the contributions from the blocked ip range in it.wikipedia.org to verify my affirmation.So please review this six months global block and change its settings to allow normal users to make their usual constructive edits while preventing the abuser from creating new accounts.
Controversies:if there is no techical possibility to allow anonymous editing and prevent account creations perhaps the full block itself could be reconsidered.I have explained above that the abuser who caused the block had created so many accounts to spam messages about a votation which ended short after that.There is a very very little risk that the abuser restarts ceating accounts to spam messages so a block lasting till december is very likely no longer necessary.Users from this range who do not have accounts are prevented fro contributing for no reasons.The only reason that range was full of abuse was because of that damn abuser who created fake accounts in several different wikipedias.Or perhaps there is something else than that abuser that stewards know and in that case please explain what.I had a look at that range contrbutions in a few wikipedias and did not notice more abuse there than in any other normal ip range.Please read this final part abut possible controversies.

Note: denied yesterday by the steward علاء (Alaa). Argumentum ad nauseam? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 20:19, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

I did not requested it again just to insist.I requsted it again because the reason given was false or a least not clear.This block does not affect anonymous users only.The correct sentence would be that already registered users only are not affected by it.The abuse this range is said to be full of is just that particular abuser's.Maybe there is something more than him that we do not know and in this case the stewards were asked by me to explain what but if there was only a single vandal casuing a lot of abuse in a lot of wikipedias spamming accounts and messages this is not a valid reason to block such a wide ip range for so long a time and the reasons are explained in the last point of my previous message.I am not going to insist until the ip rnge is unblocked.I just want stewards to give a valid reason to keep it blocked because it is almost sure that is will not run further risks of abuse from now to december.LuluGigi (talk) 14:14, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Pardon but there is a misunderstanding.You must have taken me for another user and maybe it is the abuser i have talked about.Please check my account to prove i have nothing to do with this severe vandal mentioned.I have just asked to unblock a globally blocked ip range because wikipedia should not run any more risks by now as i explained.The only other account i have created is 'Semplicemente Agghiacciante' to ask specifically for a local unblock of the same ip range in en.wikipedia but i know nothing about the others.Check my account before blocking it by mistake please.LuluGigi (talk) 08:51, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Global block for extremely disruptive LTA

Status:    Not done

The moment this last global block expired, they immediately started vandalizing again. Praxidicae (talk) 21:07, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

The /16 block proposed by Praxidicae does not pertain to any single entity – can she point to any single vandalistic edit originating from 159.146.128.0/17? The /16 even doesn’t map to one country, which can easily be seen in whois(1) and is confirmed with traceroute(1) as well. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:34, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
well half of the edits are deleted but did you bother to even look? take a look at the last 30 reverts there. There are hundreds of edits crosswiki like this. Praxidicae (talk) 11:42, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Hey, we discuss how large range to block in 159.146. – right? Not a single 159.146.x.y found where x ≥ 128. Respectfully (for a fellow LTA hunter), open a book on IP addressing, find a chapter on CIDR notation, and try to realize what am I speaking about. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:29, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: Your behavior is extremely hostile and anything but respectful. If you have an issue with this request, make it clear without insulting the requesting contributor. Vermont (talk) 12:36, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Please take a look at the range of contribs, you'll notice that every single edit since July 30th from this range has been this exact vandal. That's also not including all the deleted contribs and that's just a small handful of one IPs edits in this range. See this also. So what range would you suggest in this case? If you wish to continue this lecture, you're welcome to take it to my talk page provided you can remain civil. Praxidicae (talk) 12:55, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Possibly Special:GlobalBlock/159.146.0.0/17—after the steward Tegel and Iliev of bg.Wikipedia—would be a reasonable solution. As for those who block a whole /16 in cases where only a small part of the range is evidently active, they manage local wikis (some rather small) where little (if any) collateral damage can be expected from the carpet bombing, especially if with an IP-only block. Moreover, /16 is bluntly easier to memorize due to “159.146.*” wildcard. Global actions should require higher accuracy and a decent qualification. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 15:46, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
You're seriously calling the difference between a /16 and a /17 a "carpet bombing"? Vermont (talk) 22:29, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Question, they are indeffed in zh/enwp as Vandalism only Account. Where is the spam part? In addition, is there any need for a global lock here where there is only 2 wikis involved and they are locally blocked in both. I don't see a global lock will help here. --Cohaf (talk) 09:11, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

The user spams Eswatini as the country's name over all wikis. It's like Cote d'Ivoire or Timor-Leste, Eswatini is the official international name of the country, but it's unusual to use it in many languages. So we also have en:Ivory Coast and en:East Timor or de:Elfenbeinküste, de:Osttimor and de:Swasiland (all not under the official name), which all have been widely discussed as title. I tried to talk with the user on his home wiki (French), but he didn't react. --Icodense (talk) 06:54, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
