Current infinite block[edit]

Just tripped over

01:12, 21 July 2010: Bastique (meta.wikimedia.org) globally blocked 184.73.0.0/16 (infinite) (edits · IP check · whois) (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)

While I don't have a specific issue either way, I had thought that we had changed most to long term.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:28, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Bastique made that block using his office hat back then, and I remember he told us not to amend those blocks. As such I'd prefer to leave that block as it is. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 12:40, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Whichever, not my decision, though my recollection does not exactly align. That was not his office hat, and we have many other examples of amazon server farm blocks since then which were five year blocks, rather than infinite. When we queried staff about it during my mopping period it was my recollection that it was determined that it belonged to the community decision making. I think that notes were made on the CU wiki. It was also during that period when the feeling of stewards was that permanent blocks were not desired compared to long term blocks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:23, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
