Pathoschild created this block as a massive block for whatever reason - or the block is not correctly being enforced.

Please review the block below as it is what is being reported to me, and does not look like it is correctly working (which would explain why I am being blocked by the block listed below).

Your user name or IP address has been blocked. Pathoschild blocked from 04:33, 15 October 2009 to 04:33, 15 October 2010; the reason given was: web proxy

Your current IP address is and the block ID is #10984. Please include this in any queries.

Please fix the block list. You can find from my edits, that I primarily edit only two things: (1) Star Trek New Voyages: Phase 2 related material (I am a Producer and Webmaster for the series: Robert Mauro) (2) OS/2 related material (I have been using every version of OS/2 since 2.0 beta and have beta tested closed IBM code for it).

Additional Block Message:

You are currently unable to edit pages on Wikipedia.

You can still read pages, but cannot edit, change, or create them.

Editing from your IP address or IP address range has been disabled on all wikis by Pathoschild ( The reason given was "web proxy".

To request unblock, visit your talk page and add the text ________. Replace "REASON" with the reason for requesting unblock.

Additionally, you may appeal the global block at Steward requests/Global.

The block expires on 15 October 2010 at 04:33.

And finally, further information:

All surfing done from Firefox, though a lot of it is being performed from OS/2. The Firefox useragent should be the same except for operating system (which should indicate some version of OS/2 Warp).

Hello Robert. This block was initiated alongside several (correct) blocks against web proxies being abused. I can see no evidence that this range contains web proxies, so it must have been placed mistakenly. I have lifted the block; I apologize for the inconvenience. —Pathoschild 02:23:10, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Dear Pathoschild:

Not a problem at all... been there, done that. Heck, not too long ago, I was clearing some blocks on the Star Trek Phase 2 forum where someone inadvertently blocked a couple people by IP without realizing that they were actually blocking a chunk of traffic from AOL.

Thanks for the quick response in dealing with this!

Best, Robert
