This user has resumed harassing me at Wikinews after the 31 hour block ended. Please reblock. Thanks! Ohnoitsjamie (talk) 23:13, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

@Ohnoitsjamie. Sorry, that caught me while sleeping. I see Matiia handled the issue. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:14, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Beefing up character base for ccnorm[edit]

Looking at Special:AbuseFilter/examine/14287001 and remembering phab:T27619. If we start to get more spam and vandalism utilising this approach, I am wondering what scope their may be to building a better/extended list to mw:Extension:AntiSpoof/Equivalence sets. Also whether you know if there is a UTF equivalence list that we could leverage if we went to this sort of step.

@Platonides: If you have any wisdom or insightful to add, I would appreciate your comments.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:11, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Also noting that we have other shite like Special:AbuseFilter/examine/log/663900 for which I now have a specific filter, though is just butt ugly when I am just fumbling around with no knowledge of charsets, nor particular interest.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:22, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure equivset would help. It prevents confusable characters, not different characters. I'd say we prohibit characters not used by any supported languages by MediaWiki. But that'd not be popular (you know, customising your signature is more important, etc. <irony>). —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:04, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, well after today's spambots, yet again and with no change in approach over the past years, and … <shrug> Volunteerism … used, abused, spat out the end.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:40, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
