Global block for 2605:380:32:495:43F2:A1::/96

Status:    Not done

Please, hard-block for a year. It seems to me that the entire /96 IPv6 range, or at very least 2605:380:32:495:43F2:A1::/112—216 addresses—is allocated to a globally banned long-term abuser or somebody impersonating him. See c:Special:Contributions/2605:380:32:495:43F2:A1::/112 for details, note two distinct IPv6s. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:29, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

From a theoretical point of view minimum prefix length to block should be 64 bits. --Vituzzu (talk) 19:32, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
Blocked IPv6 prefixes both broader and narrower than /64 exist in Wikimedia. The former are up to /32 which is rather common in en.Wikipedia. The latter are usually point blocks (/128), but sometimes /96. From my layman’s understanding, IPv6 prefix specification may “theoretically” be any integer from /0 to /128 inclusively, although MediaWiki refuses to handle anything broader than /32 for security reasons. If one can mount a valid objection against blocking this /96—an insignificant portion of all IPv6 Internet—then formulate it clearer, please. I have difficulty comprehending an oracle’s remark above. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:02, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
Keeping it simple: prefixes longer than 64 bits shouldn't be assigned to different customers at the same time, per standard. Also this clearly an open proxy, so I blocked 2605:380:32:495::/64 instead. --Vituzzu (talk) 22:12, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Global block for spambot network 2405:204:C204:8972:A886:0:0:0/64

Status:    Done

This network was used by a spambot to commit cross-wiki spamming. The actual network/webhost of the spammer may be larger than the one I had listed. I had to go to different Wikimedia sites just to revert their spam edits. The IP range should also be checked for sleepers, because many of these prolific spammers are known to be LTAs. Please Globally Rangeblock this range for at least 3 months (set to "anon-only"), because the operator of this IP was spamming recently. LightandDark2000 (talk) 23:01, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

@LightandDark2000: please, fix the range notation. If you want …:A886:… to be significant, then it must be /80 or narrower. If you want a /64, then specify it as 2405:204:C204:8972::/64. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 05:28, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

For the record, I know what an open proxy is. I'm just surprised of being blocked like I'm using one, when I'm not. Maybe someone on your end made a mistake and blocked the wrong IPs? --Daniel Carrero (talk) 05:32, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for socks of cross-wiki LTA Tamara787

Status:    Done

These are the latest instances of cross-wiki abuse from the LTA User:Tamara787. Given the recent cross-wiki abuse, I strongly suggest that Stewards run a Sleeper Check on the IP range Globally to search for any more potential socks. Tamara787 is known for re-using years-old sock accounts and locally-blocked socks to vandalize other wiki sites, which is why all of his sock accounts, even the extremely old ones, need to be Globally Locked. In addition, since Tamara787 is now using his IP Range to create sock accounts across multiple Wikimedia sites, his IP Range needs to be Globally Rangeblocked for 2+ months to enforce his local rangeblocks and account locks. By the way, Stewards should note that this LTA was recently using his IP range's talk page access to troll other editors, even while blocked (locally).

In addition, Vandyrandy is known to attack other users and vandalize pages with Neo-Nazi slogans. Requesting a Global Sleeper Check, given the recent socking spree. His underlying IP ranges need to be Globally Rangeblocked, if they haven't been already. Also, his IP Global Rangeblock needs to be extended to 3-6 months to cut off further abuse; that IP range has a long history of abuse and personal attacks, and Vandyrandy had resumed socking and vandalism immediately after his earlier rangeblock had expired.

Global lock for socks of Black Magic spammer LTA

Status:    Done

These are all socks of the "Black Magic" spammer LTA. This spammer is known for cross-wiki abuse and spamming, and the user has been socking and spamming for over 6 months now. I'm starting to grow tired of dealing with this. Given the recent socking spree, I strongly suggest Stewards to Check the underlying IP range and the listed sock accounts. By the way, the IP range listed needs to be Globally Rangeblocked for at least 6 months (3 months is the absolute minimum, though 6 months would be more suitable for stopping the abuse), because this person has been spamming multiple Wikimedia sites at least since September 2017. A Global Rangeblock is necessary because this user has circumvented each of their previous (Global) IP blocks. Anonymous editors should be referred to ACC or to the Stewards for account creation if they want to edit on any of the projects (Collateral damage on the range is rather small anyway, given the sparse editing activity).

Global lock for LTA ROXELANA22 sockfarm

I've included all of the known sockpuppets from ROXELANA22's earlier sockfarm: Macallla (this account was Globally Locked and Hidden in 2008); I've excluded the socks that were already Locked. In this personal attack on my Commons talk page, ROXELANA22 pretty much confesses that his oldest account is User:Anibal1, which should be Locked as well (as the sockmaster). Given the fact that ROXELANA22 was able to re-activate User:Antiantps43 (his 3rd-oldest sock account) after 6 years of inactivity, and also given the personal attack on my talk page that I've linked earlier, it's quite likely that ROXELANA22 remembers these accounts, and also their passwords. As stated in the previous reports for ROXELANA22 that I've issued recently, the severity and duration of this LTA's cross-wiki vandalism, along with his pattern of using very old sleepers or moving locally-blocked socks to continue cross-wiki vandalism, merits a Global Lock on all of his accounts. LightandDark2000 (talk) 10:22, 27 March 2018 (UTC)

Can someone please Lock these accounts? The discussion here provides more reasons for why this LTA's socks need to be Locked. He recently began re-using years-old sock accounts to resume cross-wiki vandalism (such as User:ZiguratEnki). By the way, it's worth noting that ROXELANA22 was Banned at the English Wikipedia years ago, and given his recent cross-wiki vandalism and trolling, he's probably de-facto Globally Banned as well.

Global lock for socks of LTA Vandyrandy (3)

Status:    Done

More socks of the LTA cross-wiki vandal Vandyrandy. Cross-wiki abuse is obvious here. Vandyrandy is known for extremely degrading personal attacks and Neo-Nazi vandalism, in addition to cross-wiki vandalism. Similarly to his IPv6 range, his IPv4 range needs to be rangeblocked for at least 3-6 months, because this IP range also has an extensive history of abuse across multiple Wikimedia sites (including Meta), and also because this user is known to create sock account across multiple wiki sites. LightandDark2000 (talk) 05:12, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

After sifting through the range contributions, it appears that this IP range has been abused extensively since October 2017, concurrently with Vandyrandy's 2600:1000:B100:0:0:0:0:0/42 IPv6 range. By the way, given the history of abuse and mass socking, I strongly recommend Stewards to Check the IP range (and the listed accounts) for more Sleepers.

PlyrStar93, please enlighten me on my talk page. What are the obvious reasons? --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 01:08, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

A reason that 简单时刻 might not be a sockpuppet of 影武者 is, he used simplified Chinese but not traditional Chinese which was used by 影武者. Other than the topic (establishing ArbCOM), it seems that 简单时刻 has different philosophy ideas than 影武者 according to his/her comments. However, it is highly probable that 简单时刻 is someone else's unrevealing puppet since he knows Wikipedia so well. --PhiLiP (talk) 01:17, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
I will defer to Lanwi1 and PhiLiP's assessment and have unlocked the account. For clarity, it wasn’t Artix who requested the lock for that account. From the CU data, those three accounts (Frankie Kao, Eric McClintock, and 简单时刻) were the only ones on that IP, and it appeared they might be the same user.

Global lock for Black Magic spambot LTA (2)

Status:    Done

Obvious sockpuppet/spambot of the "Black Magic" spambot LTA. The account needs to be Locked. Given the very persistent history of cross-wiki spamming and socking (stretching back at least since September 2017), the underlying IP range(s) of the newest socks need to be Globally Rangeblocked as well. The current rangeblock should probably be expanded to a year-long Global Rangeblock on 117.119.0.0/16 (assuming that the newer IPs are on the same range), because this spammer has evaded their last, smaller rangeblock, and due to the duration of the abuse coming from the network. I noticed that a lot of IPs on this network have been reported to Blacklisting sites for spam/abuse, so these are more reasons to expand the Global Rangeblock. LightandDark2000 (talk) 07:45, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Given the history of mass socking/spambot creation by the operator of the IPs, a Steward should check the entire IP range and the listed account for more Sleepers. Given the extent of the abuse and the multitude of IPs involved in the spamming, I suspect that the company behind the network may be responsible for the spambots, or at the very least, whoever is using that IP network. You can also see the extensive abuse in the last report for more reasons why the IPs need an expanded Global Rangeblock. The IP range can be an "anon-only" block to avoid blocking unrelated users, but the IPs should still be Globally Rangeblocked for at least a year to stop the cross-wiki abuse.

Pretty much every other account I know of with "Black Magic specialist" in its name is a sock/spam account of this LTA. In any case, this account still needs to be Globally Locked, because the username alone already implies that the user is not here to contribute positively, and because the username is a violation of Wikimedia's policies on advertising / spam accounts.

Obvious socks of the cross-wiki LTA Vandyrandy. This LTA is known for Neo-Nazi vandalism, and severe personal attacks across various wiki sites.

The listed IP range should also be Globally Rangeblocked for 3+ months, as an "anon-only" rangeblock to allow unrelated users to log in and continue editing. The rangeblocks need to be multi-month blocks, given the abuse shown in the report here, and another one below it (3).

Global lock for LTA Black magic specialist spammer (4)

Status:    Done

Found even more socks of the cross-wiki LTA "Black magic specialist", after digging around in Wikipedia's Account Creation Logs. These accounts need to be Globally Locked, and the recent ones (within the past year) need to be Checked for Sleepers. For the "sockfarms" listed that mostly don't have any edits, the naming pattern pretty much gives it away. The few accounts in those sockchains that did have edits (whether or not they were blocked) all appeared to be adding "black magic" spam, or creating pages with related content. From what I can tell, this spammer has been spamming and socking since 2011 (ad possibly as early as 2009). LightandDark2000 (talk) 10:25, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

The last named account is unrelated, but needs to be Locked because of the offensive/obscene username. LightandDark2000 (talk) 10:25, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for Black Magic spambot LTA (2)

Status:    Done

Obvious sockpuppet/spambot of the "Black Magic" spambot LTA. The account needs to be Locked. Given the very persistent history of cross-wiki spamming and socking (stretching back at least since September 2017), the underlying IP range(s) of the newest socks need to be Globally Rangeblocked as well. The current rangeblock should probably be expanded to a year-long Global Rangeblock on 117.119.0.0/16 (assuming that the newer IPs are on the same range), because this spammer has evaded their last, smaller rangeblock, and due to the duration of the abuse coming from the network. I noticed that a lot of IPs on this network have been reported to Blacklisting sites for spam/abuse, so these are more reasons to expand the Global Rangeblock. LightandDark2000 (talk) 07:45, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Given the history of mass socking/spambot creation by the operator of the IPs, a Steward should check the entire IP range and the listed account for more Sleepers. Given the extent of the abuse and the multitude of IPs involved in the spamming, I suspect that the company behind the network may be responsible for the spambots, or at the very least, whoever is using that IP network. You can also see the extensive abuse in the last report for more reasons why the IPs need an expanded Global Rangeblock. The IP range can be an "anon-only" block to avoid blocking unrelated users, but the IPs should still be Globally Rangeblocked for at least a year to stop the cross-wiki abuse. LightandDark2000 (talk) 07:50, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

@There'sNoTime and Green Giant: You don't have to do anything more right now, but FYI, the abuse from this IP range was much more extensive than I had imagined (especially given the numerous local re-blocks). LightandDark2000 (talk) 08:15, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for Black Magic spambot LTA sockmaster

Status:    Done

The first named account is probably the sockmaster (or a sock account) of the "Black Magic specialist" spammer LTA, due the the username pattern. Pretty much every other account I know of with "Black Magic specialist" in its name is a sock/spam account of this LTA. In any case, this account still needs to be Globally Locked, because the username alone already implies that the user is not here to contribute positively, and because the username is a violation of Wikimedia's policies on advertising / spam accounts. As for the second account, it's an obvious sock. LightandDark2000 (talk) 08:39, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for socks of LTA Vandyrandy (4)

Status:    Done

Obvious socks of the cross-wiki LTA Vandyrandy. This LTA is known for Neo-Nazi vandalism, and severe personal attacks across various wiki sites. Given the recent socking activity of this sockmaster, I strongly suggest a Sleeper Check. The listed IP range should also be Globally Rangeblocked for 3+ months, as an "anon-only" rangeblock to allow unrelated users to log in and continue editing. The rangeblocks need to be multi-month blocks, given the abuse shown in the report here, and another one below it (3). Any other IP ranges involved (if any) should also receive a 3-6+ month-long Global Rangeblock set at "anon-only." LightandDark2000 (talk) 08:53, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for LTA Vandyrandy socks

Status:    Done

Another sock of the LTA cross-wiki vandal, User:Vandyrandy. This sock needs to be Locked. Given the persistent cross-wiki abuse and socking, personal attacks, and Neo-Nazi vandalism, Global Locks and Rangeblocks are needed to stop the abuse. Stewards should Check for Sleepers, given the recent activity, and also Globally Rangeblock the current IP range (set to "anon-only") for at least 3 months (if it is not a proxy range) to prevent further abuse. Since Vandyrandy has circumvented the rangeblocks of his 2 main IP ranges, I suspect that he is using proxy IPs again, as he has done in the past. If he is currently abusing proxy IPs, then that Proxy range should be Globally Rangeblocked for at least 1 year, or longer, depending on Wikimedia's open proxy policy.

Global lock for socks of Spambot LTA User:BlyatPutin

Status:    Done

Obvious sockpuppet of User:BlyatPutin (already Globally Locked), who is a LTA known for cross-wiki vandalism, and mass spamming of articles with spam/attack categories, spam text, or spam/obscene templates (created by the user). Please Check the user account and the IP range for Sleepers. The IP range should be Globally Rangeblocked for at least 6–12 months, since this user has been actively vandalizing and socking since December 2017 at the very least (the rangeblock can be set to "anon-only"). (If there are any other ranges that this user is abusing, they also need to be Globally Rangeblocked for 6+ months.) This user has already circumvented 4 individual Global IP blocks, so it's obvious that only a Global Rangeblock can stop his mass spamming at this point. By the way, collateral damage on his IP range is rather small, and I've seen numerous indications that his IP range actually belongs to a proxy network, so an extended rangeblock (including 1+ year long blocks) should be much more feasible. LightandDark2000 (talk) 12:33, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

From what can see, multiple IPs (and subranges) on his IP range have already been extensively blocked as "proxy IPs", so it's pretty likely that the entire IP range actually belongs to a proxy network. If this is the case, then a 1–5 year Global Rangeblock (set at "anon-only") should be applied to this range. LightandDark2000 (talk) 12:41, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for LTA User:IPhonehurricane95 socks

Status:    Not done

Recent (within the last 3 years) unlocked IPhonehurricane95 socks. The accounts have pretty much been CU confirmed or given away by behavior. For the Stewards who remember, IPhonehurricane95 was a very severe vandal with massive article vandalism, personal attacks, profanity, 9/11 imagery vandalism, and serial socking. He also inspired the vandal (User:Lightning Sabre) behind the recent UnderArmourKid sock family. There has been evidence that he has continued IP socking within the last 2 years, possibly even as recently as yesterday (see the UnderArmourKid SPI Case for the possible IP sock). Since IPhonehurricane95 is known to log back into his older socks and vandalize across multiple Wikimedia Project sites, I'm requesting that all of these sock accounts are Locked. Also, it has been standard practice to Globally Lock all IPhonehurricane95 sock accounts. LightandDark2000 (talk) 12:43, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

Here is IPhonehurricane95's SPI archive, for anyone who needs a refresher, and this is a CU check result on Commons. Most of the veteran users on Wikipedia's WikiProject Tropical Cyclones remember IPh95 (most of the senior editors and admins have been attacked by him as well), as well as a handful of Stewards and Ex-Stewards, especially during his vandalism spree in 2014. LightandDark2000 (talk) 01:33, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

@LightandDark2000: (it has been standard practice to Globally Lock all IPhonehurricane95 sock accounts) How? IPhonehurricane95 account itself not locked! also did IPhonehurricane95 made any vandalism on wikis than enwiki? --Alaa :)..! 10:39, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

@Rschen7754: what is you opinion here as you previously deal with this sock master? --Alaa :)..! 10:42, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
I am reluctant to comment as I have not followed this in recent years (though I can say that it was crosswiki). Perhaps @Trijnstel: remembers? I think there is CUwiki stuff too. --Rschen7754 18:30, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Alaa: IPhonehurricane95's master account was not locked because the account was not global (only exists on the English Wikipedia), and maybe also to allow him to make unblock requests via WP:UTRS. I'm not really sure why; I wasn't a part of any Steward discussions regarding this sockmaster. By the way, the Stewards did have a policy of Globally Locking all of IPhonehurricane95's sock accounts back in 2014, because he had a history of logging back into blocked accounts to attack other users, and to use the accounts to vandalize other project sites across the Wikimedia sites. By the way, IPhonehurricane95 continued to vandalize in 2015 and 2016, and there is evidence that he continued IP socking in 2017 (and possibly in February 2018 as well). In addition, IPh95's long history of cross-wiki vandalism and personal attacks warrants a Global Lock on all of his socks. As Rschen7754 stated above, there are Stewards and CUs who remember this sockmaster, and if you were to ask any senior user or admin on WikiProject: Tropical cyclones on the English Wikipedia, they would all remember as well, because each of those users (including me) were attacked repeatedly by IPh95. LightandDark2000 (talk) 22:43, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Portraits are definitely suspicious by their quality of images (smelling not-own) but not sure about the xwiki vandalism. — regards, Revi 14:07, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
The user in question was calling for violence in Azerbaijan on the English Wikipedia (and setting up pages dedicated solely to his "calls to violence"). Given the context of the edits and page creations on the Az Wikipedia, I assume that he was doing the same thing there too. Calling for actual violence/killing is not something that we should allow, and since this issue appears to be cross-wiki, I think that a Global Lock would be appropriate here.

Global lock for Spambot LTA Black magic specialist socks

Status:    Done

Obvious socks of the cross-wiki spambot LTA "Black magic specialist." Please also run a sleeper check, and Check the IP ranges listed above, given this user's history of mass spam socking, and Lock any other accounts found. The underlying IP ranges will also have to be Globally Rangeblocked for at least 3-6 months (set to "anon-only" to avoid blocking uninvolved users), in order to stop the abuse. Anonymous editors need to be referred to ACC or the Stewards for account creation at this point, because the extent of the spamming is simply ridiculous. The IP ranges involved are probably one (or both) of the ranges listed above - many of their IPs have also been blacklisted for spamming. The three IP ranges listed all belong to the same company/operator, as revealed by the WHOIS data of the involved IPs. The company behind the IPs may be the entity responsible for the spambots, which is quite problematic. Due to the very persistent history of spamming (extending back at least 7 years), the recent IP ranges abused need to be Globally Rangeblocked, set to "anon-only" for at least 3-6 months, otherwise, the mass spamming/socking will only continue across the wiki sites. LightandDark2000 (talk) 09:46, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

Please note that the first IP range had been repeatedly blocked locally in the past, up to 1 month (in addition to the recent, brief Global Rangeblock), and yet the spam continued after the expiration of each block. The spammer also likely circumvented the blocks by using at least one of the other IP ranges listed above. Given the abuse, all of the recently abused ranges (within the last 6 months) will probably need to receive multi-month Global Rangeblocks to stop the abuse.

Global lock for LTA vandal socks

Status:    Done

Obvious socks of the same LTA vandal, who has been active recently. The accounts could possibly belong to an even older LTA user, who I would be unaware of. This vandal is known for mass-blanking of article content, extreme profanity, personal attacks (required extensive censorship and edit deletions), trolling, and other types of vandalism. He appears to be been vandalizing and attacking other people continuously for over 6 months now. His second account is the latest sock that I know of. Please run a sleeper check, because it is quite likely that there are more sock accounts still lying in wait. Some of his underlying IPs appear to include 2607:fcc8:bbc0:9800:bc5f:ae0:1eb:522e, 2607:fcc8:bbc5:ae00:4d90:5673:bc7b:29b8, 76.190.110.106, and ‎76.190.103.234 (additionally, 170.185.0.0/16 appears to be his school's IP range, and has already been locally rangeblocked for 5 years), meaning that his IP ranges are likely the ones listed above, though he may have access to more IP ranges than the ones currently listed. LightandDark2000 (talk) 04:16, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Please Check and Globally Rangeblock his underlying IP Ranges for at least 3-6 months ("set to anon-only"), because he has been vandalizing and attacking other editors at least since October 2017. LightandDark2000 (talk) 04:16, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for cross-wiki LTA User:UltraInstinctFonzy

Status:    Done

Obvious cross-wiki vandalism. This user was vandalizing various articles, and also uploaded junk images to Commons before using those images to vandalize articles. Please also Check for sleepers and Globally Block the underlying IPs, since this LTA was recently socking across various wiki sites. His own comments on his talk page also indicates his intention to continue vandalizing, and possibly escalate his vandalism on other Wikimedia sites. By the way, some of his recent edits suggest that the account is a sock of an LTA user (see this, for example). LightandDark2000 (talk) 06:24, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

@Tegel and Green Giant: Please Lock this guy (and any other socks he may have). He's still actively vandalizing. LightandDark2000 (talk) 06:40, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Despite the local blocking, this person is free to edit in several projects, he is using the three accounts selected in that request for bookings in his issues, editions dating from November 2017, February, March and April 2018.
see:
It is destabilizing the environment of the wiki, disseminating mistrust and attacking users who correctly revert their edits, same behavior occurred in the wiki.

Obvious sockpuppet of globally-locked cross-wiki LTA account Alec Smithson (see, e.g., Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Alec Smithson for some history). Some contribs should probably be nuked if anyone wants to – es:Premio Mylius-Bernocchi is particularly deceptive, contributions to id.wp and zh.wp are unlikely to be less so (but I don't have the language skills to confirm that, any more than the user has the skills to contribute in those languages). I assume that this is too stale for check-user, but if not, then that also might be helpful. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 23:01, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

@Justlettersandnumbers: This account has already global locked by Ruslik0, does it need to report it again? SA 13 Bro (talk) 23:23, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
No, SA 13 Bro, there's surely no need to lock him again! That's my mistake, sorry! – I had thought that this page would show me if he was locked, but clearly I was wrong. However, nuking some of his contribs (the article on es.wp, his sandboxes on ca.wp, possibly others) still seems like a good idea. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 08:26, 16 April 2018 (UTC)
@Justlettersandnumbers: It doesn't matter. :) When you click the "User contributions" on English Wikipedia and appeared a red banner said that "This account is globally locked. See global account details for more information.", that sock accounts doesn't need to report it again. If you found out any Alec Smithson new or trendy sock accounts, you can report it at here anytime, while the stale accounts also doesn't need to report. SA 13 Bro (talk) 05:16, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, SA 13 Bro! I didn't think of looking at his contribs on en.wp because he doesn't have any (but the message does show up as you say). What I am suggesting here is nuking (i.e., deleting) some of the worst of his contributions. Is there any interest in doing that? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 21:31, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

The Liza Veniza's sock, long-term abuse, global lock evasion, cross-wiki threat and harassment. --Well-Informed Optimist (talk) 16:01, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

No, name "Любимая песчанка" translating to "Favorite gerbil". Marshmallych ?! 16:05, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Exact meaning of песчанка is elusive, but there is no obscene connotations here. Another observation is that the LTA produced two puppets today which were—astonishingly—able to edit in en.Wikipedia, a wiki known for strict blocking of problematical IPs, let alone definite troll houses. We need new approaches, probably some AI which would help to combat LTA incursions. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 17:09, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

User with multiple identities already banned on it.wiki - trolling and attacks also on meta see here as an example. So we are now facing a cross-wiki trolling. Also a global Check User would help, since this user on it.wiki has plenty of socks (main user: User:Razorblade76, the user flagged here is just yet-another-sock). I'm also a Check User on it.wiki --L736Etell me 21:11, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
