checkuser on enwikinews[edit]

Hello, Back in July, Brian@enwikinews lost his checkuser privileges due to inactivity and per global policy, Wikinews' only other checkuser, Tom Morris was removed per the rule of 2. We are considering nominations to have local checkusers again.

My question is, if we successfully nominate and elect one user for checkuser, can Tom Morris be reinstated without going through the entire process? Cheers, --SVTCobra (talk) 18:37, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

@SVTCobra: If you nominate and elect another user for CU then Tom Morris will get his rights back. RadiX 18:41, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

SRCU[edit]

Hello RadiX, I was suggested by EVinente to call on you. I'd like to report a problem which need a checkuser: here or here (I don't know which one is the correct place to report such a problem) you can read what I've noticed about a cross-wiki vandal who uses proxies and socks to edit the same pages in different languages. So far, nobody has even answered yet, and I added the topics on tuesday... Perhaps an IP user isn't often listened to as a registered user is, but the problem is real, and started a month ago, and is still going on... The user who made this report is the last and least problem here, am I wrong? Please, let me know what you can do about that and, if you can't deal with that, please tell me whom I should call on. Thank you in advance! 151.64.162.24 17:18, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Please let me know whether this user is abusing multiple accounts. I don't see any diffs from the links you provided above, just a few IP ranges instead. RadiX 17:24, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
The only 2 accounts I could find are Myeuurn and Baka Líte, while most of the IPs he's used are from proxies (AS6939 HURRICANE - Hurricane Electric, Inc., US). It would be needed just a check to proove the relation between the proxy IPs, the normal IPs and the socks. 151.64.162.24 18:01, 11 January 2018 (UTC) P.S. "151.68.113.104" new IP found: he's not going to stop...
Your request is now under review. RadiX 00:53, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Excuse me for disturbing you again RadiX, but are you sure that my request is under review? Nobody has modified it, and the line "In progress" was there since I posted it. It seems strange to me that after 5 days nobody among sysops and bureaucrats on meta.wikimedia has taken care of such a request yet, a request involving proxies and socks used cross-wiki which normally are checked and blocked even too easily and quickly, while instead the very likely one user behind all this is still freely going on using them in different projects. I've reported this problem because I wanted to do a good thing for this project, but maybe it's something nobody really cares about and I risk becoming annoying for admins, which is the last thing I want. If it's so, please tell me, I don't want to be "the" problem. 151.64.178.93 18:49, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Dear user, bureaucrats/sysops have nothing to do with this. Your request is being reviewed by stewards. Once we are done with this we will come back to you. Regards, RadiX 18:56, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind answer, now I feel more relieved! 151.64.178.93 19:01, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
In the meantime you'd better provide us with more specific information. Diffs demonstranting a bad behavior across multiple projects would be of some help on this regard. RadiX 19:03, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I'll select some disruptive edits to bring as examples. Almost all edits involve Italian stuff. Anyway, the fact he's using open proxies (as proven, for example, by EVinente, one of the admins who blocked and reverted the user behind the proxy) and sock puppets (to deceive, mislead, avoid sanctions and evade blocks) is itself a violation of wikipedian rules. 151.64.178.93 19:15, 13 January 2018 (UTC) P.S. I'm asking just to have an idea: more or less how long will it take my request?
It may take a little while. It also depends on how quickly you'll provide us with the required information. The request you filed at SRCU is missing with some necessary details. For instance, it's harsh to look at those wide IP ranges and draw a conclusion based on it. RadiX 04:24, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
You're right, in that page I've written just the IP ranges because the highest number of users to check is 10, while in the other I could insert all the single IPs I managed to find. Today I'll add more information, please have a look later to verify it's what stewards need to know to proceed. 151.64.180.18 10:49, 14 January 2018 (UTC) P.S. done :-)
Ok then. RadiX 19:35, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
Do you know who is/are the steward(s) checking my request? If you know please point out that I've inserted more information in that box at SRCU and that the full list of IPs I'm updating daily is at RFCU, and if it's possible please also ask how much longer will it take (I've made the request a week ago). Sorry for disturbing you again with this stuff. 151.64.163.232 14:15, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
Please be patient, I'm a bit busy at the moment. We usually do not match users to IP addresses. I'll look at this later. RadiX 17:39, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
Okay, thank you. I won't interpellate again till at least next week. 151.64.164.185 18:12, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi RadiX. 15 days have passed, and no answer has arrived yet. What have I done wrong in this request? Is there a technical quibble preventing it from being checked? Is there a serious reason such a request can't be accepted because of policies? Please don't just tell me stewards are working on it, unless you know which stewards actually are. It all started from the block of a proxy in pt.wikipedia, and I've been spending a long time after this problem, reporting daily new proxies, socks and normal IPs connectable to the same user, who's still continuing with the same cross-wiki edits. What can you tell me about all this? What do you suggest me to do? Opening a new request on SRCU from my registered account but this time making it in the most correct and clear way possible? Give me a hand please! 151.64.176.18 15:55, 23 January 2018 (UTC) P.S. both my requests have just been closed...

RadiX: please, PLEASE, will you lend me a hand about this story? I've made a new request, from a registered account, in the right page, without listing all the dozens of IPs which are collected in my talk page... You yourself are a steward, the troll I've been reporting for all this time has started on pt.wikipedia where he was blocked and reverted, and there's actually nothing to investigate because I've done all the work and already explained everything clearly, we just need a steward to confirm that those accounts and IPs are linked to each others so that this cross-wiki abuser can be blocked by all his socks, proxies and ranges to prevent him from further disrupting. Can you do this, RadiX? 151.64.163.127 16:55, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello. I dropped a comment there. RadiX 21:44, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, I've read it and replied. Do you think that my request can't be checked because of its nature? I've asked on meta because it's about IPs and accounts editing cross-wiki, I hope it can be taken charge of by stewards... 151.64.187.180 14:41, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. I still haven't managed to read what you wrote there. I'll check this later. RadiX 17:45, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
Meanwhile, I've requested CUs in a pair of single wikis and they're positive. Since it's a cross-wiki problem, it'd be better to deal with it here on meta, anyway... When you have some time, please read what I've written in SRCU. 151.64.162.204 16:14, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
I was under the impression that none of those accounts had been blocked before. Please point me to the links regarding these CUs. RadiX 02:06, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
RadiX, I was under the impression that having a blocked account wasn't a pre-requisite for a check, as I've written in SRCU, it'd be rather a consequence if the check confirms the use of sockpuppets and proxies, which are forbidden... The CUs I've talked about, so far didn't produce a block but just confirmed the use of socks or proxies, since the real problem is that this user is using a number of IPs and accounts "cross-wiki", and those CUs concerned just single wikis, where the number of his contributions is obviously much lower. Answer this question, please: the use of proxies and the abuse of socks is still against Wikipedian conditions or not? If it isn't, then my request has no meaning to be (even if I've reported examples his of inappropriate and disruptive edits, some of the which were rollbacked by admins, who also blocked a few of his ranges). If it is, then I really don't understand why all stewards, apart from you, are ignoring my request despite I've opened it almost one month ago. 151.64.167.110 13:31, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
Not necessarily. There should be clear evidence that actions had been aimed at mitigating both bad behavior and sockpuppetry at any level with regards to a measure such as blocking, protecting etc. Btw I have replied to your comment there. RadiX 02:17, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
About what happened this morning, I left a message in your Portuguese talk page with an account I've created for that, Metharinan. But this morning something else, and much better, happened: account Myeuurn was blocked in fr.wikipedia with an expiration time of indefinite for sockpuppetry abuse. I think that finally you've got what you demanded, an evidence that all I've said from the very beginning a month ago about this proxy user and sockpuppet abuser was true. I hope that now you can proceed with the cross-wiki check over the related accounts sharing the same IP ranges and showing similar edits. 151.64.176.203 17:45, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

I'd like to know what you think about this story. RadiX, I'm not the troll who made that edit in it.wikipedia, and if it wasn't for this misunderstanding the CU request would be probably processed, since in fr.wikipedia the sock and proxy ranges were blocked after a local CU request and this is the overwhelming evidence. The problem is real, my accusation was true, French sysops now know it and for this they blocked the vandal in fr.wikipedia. On these bases, what are we waiting for to check these accounts and IPs globally and take measures? I repeat: I'm not the troll I was accused to be, I've never done that edit which had nothing to do with all this, there's no connection between me and the troll, you're a checkuser and you can verify it by yourself, even better, I'm asking you to check, if I were guilty I woudln't ask you to do that. We just shared the same IP range, but I bet I can find tons of vandalisms made over that range, are all of them linkable to me? Counterexample: the same admin who yesterday blocked me has recently blocked also an IP who made some vandalisms in it.wikipedia, 151.18.35.251 (belonging to IP range 151.18.0.0/16, one of the ranges used by the vandal I've been reporting): does this mean it was him too? No, of course: these vandalisms have nothing to do with Italian accents, they're not linkable to the proxy user and sock abuser... As I have nothing to do with the troll who edited a page (lokum ) which has absolutely nothing to do with his story. The problem here isn't "my CU request", but "the object of my CU request", a cross-wiki vandal who for 2 months has been anonymising himself behind open proxies and sockpuppets. I mean: even if, for absurd, I actually had been that troll, would this mean the cross-wiki vandal is unguilty because I've accused him? After a French sysop has verified I was saying the truth? Tell me what you think sincerely, even if you don't trust me please tell me. And excuse me for writing this much. 151.64.182.54 15:24, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

  • It may take some time before I manage to complete reading everything you mentioned in that wall of text and finally come to a conclusion. Regards, RadiX 01:42, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

I'm reassuming here:

  • First, I said I'm not the same person who made that vandalism in it.wikipedia which, as far as I understand, had absolutely nothing to do with me, my CU request and the users involved, it seems that the only common ground that my blocked account and the troll had in commmon was the IP range, with 1 chance over 65536 that when I logged in on 2/2 my IP was the same that the troll had on 31/1...
  • Second, I was wondering how come a user who's been using cross-wiki both proxies (proven) and socks (proven), and whose true identity is certainly an old Italian registered user, is even now free to continue behaving like that, anonymising himself to deceive admins, since it seems the fact that the signaler (me) was accidentally exchanged for a troll and then blocked would automatically make the signaled (him) innocent without a check and, overall, after checks in other wikis had already proven he was culpable...

The last paragraph I've added concerned a portrait of the cross-wiki vandal psychology, I've added it just because of his silken attempt to coax you. 151.64.164.38 14:09, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

Thank godness, you've removed the protection! I'm removing my message on yout Portuguese talk page too. Okay, I'd like to know if you could tell me any news about my CU case and what I've told you about what I wrote to you after my account was blocked because of a misunderstanding. I've also heard from another checkuser that there should be a discussion in the private mailing-list of checkusers about this issue... May you confirm or deny it please? If you confirm, is it about my CU request (with all the evidences I brought) or about the accusation about me? Thank you! 151.64.185.21 12:48, 10 February 2018 (UTC) P.S. RadiX, read at least this last message of mine and answer my doubt, please, if you haven't read yet my "wall of text" nor the reassumed version...

The IP ranges you provided are likely too wide for an effective range check, so that there is no way to assure they have been sharing IPs with a well-known or established user. That's the reason why your request was declined. I can look at the proxy IP ranges and block them at some extent to prevent further abuses though. RadiX 03:46, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer RadiX. Well, apart from all the evidences (identical differences between revisions), if those socks logged in with at least one of those IP ranges, which were used for nothing but edits about final accents in Italian names lately and whose edits were coincidentally restored by these socks, wouldn't it mean that they're actullay all "socks"? Anyway, in this moment I'd like to ask you if you knew anything about that CU discussion on the international mailing-list (either about the cross-wiki vandal, or about the accusation towards me of being the troll who made that vandalism in it.wikipedia). If you know, please let me know when admins have taken a decision, please. 151.64.170.29 14:24, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
Not immediately responding to your messages does not mean I am ignoring you. I've been pretty busy with other stuff lately. Indeed there is confidential information I am not allowed to disclose publicly so that I'll not be responding to some of your questions. It may take a little while. RadiX 03:53, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
I didn't think you were ignoring me, not at all! Once I said you're the only one who's not ignoring me. So, thank you for the time you're spending on my requests, and thank you for taking care of 2 of the socks I've reported. That's what I wrote yesterday on your other talk page (plus a little advice in the end...) :-) 151.64.184.23 11:20, 17 February 2018 (UTC) P.S. have you got any not confidential news about the case?
Yes, those two accounts are now locked. I've also blocked their proxy ranges globally. RadiX 03:16, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I know, and I want to thank you again for taking care of the sockpuppets and the open proxies! Do you mean this was the decision about the case in the internarional mailing-list of checkusers or it was you who detected the link among these identities? Do you also know (in case you can talk about it) whether it was established that blocking my account was a mistake because I wasn't connected to the Italian troll who made that old vandalism? One last thing: in your other talk page I've also mentioned one more sockpuppet's and the sockmaster's names, they've shared for sure either at least one of the proxy IP ranges or at least one of the Italian IP ranges I'd written in my old request. You've done enough already so I won't insist if you don't want to do it, but this is a tip-off about the sockmaster which deserves to be taken in consideration, on my opinion... 151.64.177.81 14:14, 22 February 2018 (UTC) P.S. I'm going not to disturb you again, but can you please answer my last question?
Hello. I've got your point, but, sorry, I can't share this information with you. Thank you for bringing this up to our attention. However, any further action in this case should be done privately, if needed. RadiX 04:18, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Okay, I understand you can't tell other users such information, no problem. My opinion about the cross-wiki vandal is that either somebody has checked the sockpuppets but couldn't find a link with the sockmaster because he's been too careful not to be discovered, or that somebody forbid checkusers to investigate that user because the person who tipped off to check him was me with the (false) accusation to be the troll who made a vandalism in Italian wiki (even if the real reason would be the "omertà" among Italian admins, getting rid of me to protect one of their comrades from truthful accusations); I don't know which one would be the worst... I know you can't tell me anything, I'm not asking in fact. I'm just telling you this: in case what I've just said is wrong (i.e. in case nobody has checked my suggestion yet and in case nobody forbid checkusers to do this check), you, RadiX, could really verify that the sockmaster of all those sockpuppets, that is the user behind the proxies you blocked and behind the Italian IPs, that is the cross-wiki vandal's true identity is that Italian admin from Lombard wiki whose name I've written in your other talk page (together with the name of another of his socks). If, unlike in my nation, law is the same for everyone here, then whoever broke the rules using open proxies and socks has to be punished like everyone else even if he's a bigwig. Anyway, I think this is the last message I'll write here, you've done enough blocking his socks and open proxies and I'm grateful to you for that, you're the only one who take this problem seriously instead of ignoring me and so you found out I was saying the truth, so now I'm leaving you alone, you have many other things to do I guess. Thanks again and good bye! Obrigado & Ciao :-) 151.64.170.98 15:33, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for not being able to reply properly. The workload has increased these days so I'm trying to catch up with stuff whenever is possible. As a quick note: I've read your messages and I know what you meant. I am not ignoring you. Thank you. RadiX 01:54, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
And I know you aren't ignoring me, you're the only one I think, that's why it's me who thank you and you don't have to be sorry! When your workload decreases, just remember that you might consider to check also the user I'm accusing to be the sockmaster, his sockpuppets were blocked for "Long-term abuse" and so should be done to the original "Long-term abuser" on my opinion... 151.64.179.246 15:22, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

Pedido de desbloqueio indeferido[edit]

Olá, como vai? Eu gostaria de reaver a minha página,ou seja, o direito de editá-la. Estou tentando mudá-la para estar mais adequadamente encaixada dentro dos padrões wikipedistas. Peço o especial favor de desbloqueâ-la.

Ontem notei que deixou uma mensagem dizendo que já tinha feito, a constatação depois foi diferente. Acho que os seus motivos para me bloquear não foram tão claros, pois vandalismo constituíu um termo muito vago, visto que não sei a que se referia especificamente como vandalismo. Espero que defira mui brevemente quanto possível!

Hi![edit]

Hi, RadiX! I'm RaymondSutanto, admin on id.wikipedia, id.wikibooks, and id.wikisource. I'm sure you know me pretty well because I often request global lock for Manda langsa spam accounts. I read at your user page that you're a steward, so can I ask you for some help? Can you help me monitoring Bugis Wikipedia (bug.wikipedia) to deleting some articles that have been written there? All these articles were not written in Bugis language, but in Indonesian language (I know enough about Bugis because Bugis is an ethnic group in Sulawesi, Indonesia). All these articles were also written by Manda langsa spam accounts (either IP or logged-in accounts). I ask you for help because bug.wikipedia doesn't have any local administrator. Thank you. RaymondSutanto (talk) 18:32, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

@RaymondSutanto: I do not comprehend any of those languages properly. Either way you can surely ping me here (or any other Steward at Steward requests/Miscellaneous) whenever you find something out of place there. I am familiar with their socks through my work as a steward so that I can easily identify them. Regards, RadiX 03:34, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Global Lock request for an active LTA[edit]

Hello. Can you please Globally Lock the listed sock accounts of ROXELANA22 at m:SRG? No one has Locked the accounts for almost a month now, but ROXELANA22 is re-using (or respawning) older, blocked accounts on different Wikimedia sites (where his accounts are unblocked) in order to vandalize there. He recently did this using RAAM43, a sock account that was indeffed back in September 2017, to vandalize my Commons talk page (BlueHypercane761) just a few days ago. ROXELANA22 has been vandalizing multiple Wikimedia sites and attacking other users for 12 years now (and that's not even close to accurately describing the severity of his vandalism). The accounts with Cross-wiki privileges are currently listed in 2 separate requests at SRG. Can you please Lock the accounts? If no one locks them, he will probably begin reusing them to continue vandalizing different Wikimedia sites. Thank you. LightandDark2000 (talk) 07:08, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Ok, I'll look at this, RadiX 15:00, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
@LightandDark2000: Is there evidence of recent activity for any of the listed accounts? RadiX 17:25, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
Nevermind. I just saw this. RadiX 19:26, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

It turns out I missed some socks. Can you please Lock them as well? The reasoning is pretty much for the same as the previous accounts, and these accounts also have cross-wiki privileges. A lot of them are surprisingly recent. By the way, the Meta Blocks account suggests that he is aware of what the Stewards are doing to his accounts. Some of the newer account naming patterns could indicate possible article targets, or an attempt to evade scrutiny. Thank you. LightandDark2000 (talk) 09:07, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

He's back again. And this time, he even used a 3 year old Sleeper Account, ZiguratEnki. Can you please Lock all of these accounts? Thank you. LightandDark2000 (talk) 21:29, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Can you please also apply Global Rangeblocks to a couple of his IP Ranges? The ranges are the most recent ones that he has used in the last 6 months (a CU block on Wikipedia indicates that he is currently on the 2nd range, via the local block for 181.57.244.205), and unless his ranges are Globally Blocked, it's likely that he will continue mass socking and vandalizing across multiple sites. At this point, I seriously believe that given the amount of cross-wiki vandalism and trolling, the blocks are worth it, despite the collateral damage. The IPv6 Rangeblock applied for the Dog and Rapper Vandal LTA has a comparable amount of collateral damage (2607:fb90::/32) on Wikipedia, and yet, it's been blocked for 3 years. At this point, if anyone from ROXELANA22's ranges want to contribute positively to the Projects, they need to request an Account Creation at ACC instead of editing while logged out. It's not worth keeping any of the ranges open now, especially since ROXELANA22 also has an extensive history of IP socking as well (esp. on the English Wikipedia and Commons).

Import user right on the WMPT wiki[edit]

Hi there RadiX. User:Alchimista and I are working on the migration of Wikimedia Portugal's wiki contents from a self-hosted server, at wikimedia.pt, to the one now hosted by the WMF at pt.wikimedia.org. When the latter was recreated, we were granted temporary import rights so that we could upload XML files exported from the older wiki, but unexpected work related to the chapter kept us busy, and we didn't manage to complete the transition before the user right expired. Could you reassign us to the importer user group, so that we can finish the transition? Thanks! Waldir (talk) 18:27, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

@Waldir and Alchimista: I'll be granting you importer rights on pt.wikimedia.org for 1 year as you both held this permission before. Should you no longer need the rights in the meantime, please let me know. RadiX 00:00, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

Solicitação de desbloqueio[edit]

Boa noite, Radix! Inicialmente peço mil desculpas por utilizar este espaço para solicitação de desbloqueio. O que me levou a isto foi o fato de meu número de IP ter sido bloqueado por Stuckkey na Wiki-pt no dia 11h12min de 22 de abril de 2018 com previsão para terminar em 11h12min de 6 de maio de 2018 e o motivo apresentado foi: "Contas múltiplas". Estou impedida da funcionalidade de contatar usuários ou administradores por meio de minha página de discussão ou e-mail. Utilizei então a única possibilidade colocada à minha disposição para contestar o bloqueio em unblock-pt-l@lists.wikimedia.org, mas infelizmente até o momento não obtive retorno. Sou usuária ativa na Wikipédia-pt há mais de oito anos e venho diariamente contribuindo com esta enciclopédia e com outros projetos Wikis estando sempre logada como Usuária:Clarice Reis. No último dia 22, minutos após eu realizar mais uma edição (após uma série de continuadas edições nesse dia) fui surpreendida com o aviso do bloqueio. Não sei se o que gerou isso foi um erro do sistema ou do administrador que o aplicou. Tenho apenas a certeza de que trata-se de uma falha de uma das partes e peço-lhe a gentiliza de analisar esta solicitação para que eu possa continuar contribuindo com o Projeto Wiki-pt. Desde já o meu muito obrigada pela atenção. --Clarice Reis (talk) 02:49, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

@Clarice Reis: Adicionei a isenção local de bloqueio à sua conta. RadiX 01:37, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
Muitíssimo obrigada RadiX! Eu acho que o que ocorreu comigo (e muito provavelmente já ocorreu e ocorrerá com outros usuários) deveria ser levado para análise e discussão pelos programadores e administradores da Wiki-pt. Modéstia a parte, eu sou uma das usuárias(os) que mais contribui diariamente com aquela enciclopédia, tanto na criação de artigos, manutenção e reversão de vandalismos e poderia agora estar banida do Projeto se me fosse aplicada uma punição mais severa por total falha operacional ou do sistema sem ter a chance de me defender, uma vez que me encontrava impossibilitada de alertar outros usuários e administradores do ocorrido tanto em minha página de discussão quanto via e-mail e por ser o espaço unblock-pt-l@lists.wikimedia.org muito lento ou ineficiente no atendimento das solicitações. Enquanto estive na "geladeira" me ocupei de outros projetos Wikis, como o Commons, mas esses dias foram para mim extremamente frustrantes pela injusta punição recebida. Mais uma vez muito grata pela atenção a mim dispensada e continue com seu ótimo trabalho. --Clarice Reis (talk) 02:06, 26 April 2018 (UTC)
@Clarice Reis: O bloqueio não deveria ter sido estendido a usuários registrados, mas agora já está resolvido. Abs, RadiX 02:42, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Talk:Steward requests/Global‎‎[edit]

Hello.
LTA socks showing up on the page make catching of the abusers easier. You may deem edits on this talk page to be implicit global lock requests. What did you achieve with the protection? Sock puppets will go make disruption elsewhere, resulting in necessity to submit explicit global lock requests – consuming time of anti-LTA volunteers. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:45, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

If a page is subject to significant/persistent vandalism, then it should be (semi-)protected temporarily to preserve its history. There is no point in allowing such disruption to continue in order to get "implicit global lock requests". Global abuse filters and/or LTA fighters will catch those LTAs anyway.
