Global block 2600:8800:3000:0:0:0:0:0/36

Status:    Not done

Block evasion by globally locked user MisterAnthony. He has been occasionally active on Interlingua wikipedia as various IPs since the locking of his named account:

with a sudden recent flurry of activity:

His signature on iawiki is the creation of micro-stub articles for U.S. actors, each containing one sentence in Interlingua and another in Spanish, partly redundant with the first (ia:Special:Diff/592001). The wikidata item histories indicate he creates similar fill-in-the-blanks micro-stubs for the same actor in dozens of other small languages, together with messing around with wikidata itself.

I havve blocked the /36 on iawiki for 6 months and don't expect collateral problems, based on the size of iawiki and observation of the contributions in the range. There have been previous global blocks within the range:

The 3081 range above is probably stale. The 3080 and 3982 have received blocks as just mentioned. The 3981 is new. If /36 is excessive for a global block, may I suggest:

(Incidentally, a new named account has just appeared: AnthonyAW. Even with only 4 edits, it looks like a sock of this user. Will bear watching.)

Cross-wiki vandal (see also en:Wikipedia:Long-term_abuse/Boy_band_vandal) active for more than 10 days. --Horcrux92 (talk) 08:36, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Could somebody please action this? Also 2001:56a:f580::/41 would need to be blocked, per the last requests linked from the abuse report. Graham87 (talk) 07:16, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Also, account creation should be allowed, due to collateral damage. I've just found out that the strongest block will apply for IP addresses which have been both locally and globally blocked, so if account creation were disabled in the global block, that would undo the account-creation-enabling effect of the local one. Graham87 (talk) 16:15, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
Graham87, that is not possible: "Global blocks should, wherever practicable and sensible, be placed with the anonymous only flag on. Remember that even in this case account creation from the blocked address(es) is prevented." @ Global blocks. Emphasis mine. — regards, Revi 10:39, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Status:    Not done

Hello. This user is:

  1. repeatedly adding false information
  2. been blocked several times for vandalism on en.wp, and globally blocked (95.26.18.111) for long-term abuse
  3. abusing many projects since (at least) mid-June 2017, cf. the list above
  4. ignoring the comments from other contributors, cf. my last attempt of discussion, one of my other attempts of discussion, en:User talk:95.26.222.66, en:User talk:95.26.140.56, etc.
  5. the unique user of 95.26.0.0/16 since mid-June 2017 (except for a few edits that might be from someone else: 6 edits on commons, 109 (out of 245) on en.wp, 2 on fr.wp, 1 on fr.wiktionary, 6 on it.wp, etc.)
  6. sometimes (but more often in the past) using 95.25.0.0/16 and 176.59.0.0/16.

@NicoScribe: did anybody try to complain to the ISP? There are many legitimate users in this /16 range. It is not a hosting making its business exactly for housing trolls and other scum. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:31, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
@Incnis Mrsi: thank you for your comments. I am sorry, I have made a mistake in my item 5: the Russian Wikipedia is the unique project with many legitimate contributions in this /16 range. So a local unblocking should be applied on the Russian Wikipedia.
I have not made a complaint to the ISP. But this user is just a cross-wiki long-term abuser, and there are many cross-wiki long-term abusers, and most of the time their cases are managed with blocks or filters. If this case is managed by a complaint to the ISP, I would be surprised (but I rarely report cases of cross-wiki long-term abusers, and of course I don't have the experience of a steward). --NicoScribe (talk) 06:18, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

Hello @Ajraddatz: thank you for your answer even if, of course, I am sad about this conclusion. With a local unblocking on the Russian Wikipedia, I see very little collateral damage of a global block, as I have explained before. The IP are all over the /16 IP range, so narrower range blocks seem impossible. So what is the solution? Block the vandal one IP at a time? --NicoScribe (talk) 07:49, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

@Well-Informed Optimist: wouldn’t blocking 213 IPs for one vandal an overkill? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:28, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Well-Informed Optimist, I looked into Internet, Free SAS is not open proxy. Marshmallych 19:11, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

@Marshmallych: he did not claim it is an open proxy, read the rationale indeed. Also, learn proper use of indentation—:—in wiki threads. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:19, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Incnis Mrsi, that's open proxy really. Marshmallych 19:23, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Risible. It is about low qualification of this sysop and overall chaos in fr.Wikipedia, as well. Not really about a huge open proxy occupying 8190 different IPs. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:34, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

I edited your report title. Remember to list only the option that you want. By the way, it looks like some Global Rangeblocks could be useful here. LightandDark2000 (talk) 21:44, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I don't know how a global range-block would interfere with other legitimate IP editors within the range. He usually has only one IP address at a time, and then for only 1-50 days before it switches, never to be used again. What a global block will accomplish however, is to stop his normal practice of switching to another language wiki when blocked on English or French Wikipedia.

Global block for 98.183.128.0/17 and unblock for 98.183.0.0/16

Status:    Not done

@Ruslik0: the whois information (from ARIN) and observations on IP edits make clear that Tamara787-infested range is a /17, not /16. Edits from 98.183.0.0/17, such as [4][5], are indeed mostly good. Unblock the /16 and block the /17, and please, be more careful in issuing broad-range global blocks next time, even anon-only. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 16:53, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

The whois information doesn't say this at all: it must be read more carefully. For a series of obscure administrative reasons a big chunk of former B classes was given to COX in different times, so, in short, assignment is the same from the whole 98.160.0.0/9, though different parts shows the signs of a fairly "diverse" internal subnetting. However at least 98.180.0.0/14 seems to have the same BGP announcements: so, in such circumstances is not possible to reply upon whois. Only data collected by checkusers can be useful. I know nothing about this specific LTA but it's important to know which source of information we should rely upon. --Vituzzu (talk) 20:15, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
I think that this rant here by Tamara787 is enough to tell that the current Global Rangeblock is quite effective. I would not recommend downsizing this block unless CheckUser evidence proves that the abuse is limited to the smaller range. LightandDark2000 (talk) 00:43, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
The /16 range is not very active: only about 20 newly registered accounts in the last three months and ~90% of them belong to Tamara787. So, it does not make sense to split the block into the narrower ranges. Ruslik (talk) 18:49, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Open proxy network abused by an LTA vandal very recently. The vandal claims to be Wikinger, but behavioral evidence also suggests that this is an attempted impersonation by Cruizir.

Status:    Done

Seems like significant chunks of IP addresses with one of Sweden's major ISPs were swept along with this block. It needs to be narrowed down, I think. Would love to have my own IP unblocked for starters. Details:

You are currently unable to edit Wikipedia.
Editing from your IP address range (5.150.192.0/18) has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 20:11, 12 May 2023 by Vituzzu (meta.wikimedia.org) for the following reason:
hosting service with open proxies such as 5.150.254.143
This block began on 20:11, 12 May 2018
You can contact Vituzzu to discuss the block and you may make unblock requests or file appeals at meta:Steward requests/Global. Your current IP address is 5.150.225.115. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

Thanks for having another look! – Alimony (talk) 00:07, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

Please remember to select only one option while filing these reports, otherwise it can get really confusing. LightandDark2000 (talk) 02:12, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

Not sure what you mean regarding options, did I do something wrong in the request?

I'm not quite sure why I'm hit by this global block, but I hope it can be removed, so that I can keep editing as a legitimate contributor. The details of the block are:

The block was made by Vituzzu (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is hosting service with open proxies such as 5.150.254.143. Start of block:

Global lock for cross-wiki LTA ROXELANA22 sock (2)

Status:    Done

Obvious sock of the cross-wiki LTA User:ROXELANA22, given the username (especially the hatred implied towards the AN/TPS-43 article). Simply put, this user is known for many years of severe cross-wiki vandalism, obscenities, indirect death threats, and trolling. Like ROXELANA22's other sock accounts, this account needs to be Globally Locked because this LTA is known to re-use very old sleeper accounts (extending at least to 6 years), and also because he is known to "migrate" his socks to another wiki site to facilitate cross-wiki vandalism. Please also see the discussion here for more evidence of why these socks need to be Locked. The sock accounts ZiguratEnki, Antiantps43, and Revell34 are some of the best examples of his cross-wiki vandalism and extremely-old sleeper usage. LightandDark2000 (talk) 04:52, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

This sock needs to be Globally Locked, because I've learned recently from a couple of LTAs that locally-blocked socks can be recreated on other Wikimedia sites, and this LTA is known for migrating and "re-spawning" his locally-blocked socks. LightandDark2000 (talk) 00:45, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Please also run a sleeper check for more socks on the underlying IP range, and please Globally Rangeblock the underlying IP range for at least 3-6 months (set to "anon-only"), because this vandal is known for mass socking and cross-wiki vandalism. The IP range could be the one I listed above (given the abuse on a specific user's talk page on Wikipedia). This LTA is known for Neo-Nazi style vandalism, personal attacks, and cross-wiki vandalism, so it's important to lock his accounts and Globally Block his IPs. LightandDark2000 (talk) 01:45, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

The problem is, his IPv6 ranges are usually much larger than that - if we are lucky, he might be limited to the /64 range this time. LightandDark2000 (talk) 00:56, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
I added another IP Range: 66.87.120.0/21. This range was recently abused by Vandyrandy, within the past couple of months. Just today, Vandyrandy, or another LTA known as the "Article-Blanking IP" was carrying out mass vandalism across Wikipedia. (There is some indication that the vandal responsible for the recent vandalism is Vandyrandy himself.) Since this range has been persistently abused by at least 1 or 2 LTAs within the last 6 months, please Globally Rangeblock this range for at least 3-6 months (set to "anon-only").

Global lock for Account Hacking LTA

Status:    Not done

Unfortunately, I do not know who exactly is responsible, so I don't have any IPs or accounts to list at this moment. However, I've seen enough of this crap. Have a look at this discussion on WP:AN for more background info on this hacking attempt, and also look at this graph depicting the Wikimedia Project Account Login attempts. This is the second consecutive day of this hack attack, and it's time for it to end. Based on the patterns of the attacks and the users targeted, it appears that the person responsible may be an LTA user familiar with Meta Wiki and/or other projects; one user suggested that the person behind these attacks may be the LTA Willy on Wheels. Please Check the IPs responsible for the mass-hacking attempts (maybe Check the compromised accounts or one or two user accounts that were targeted, if it works), and Globally Block all of the involved IP ranges (set to "anon-only") for at least 3-6 months. Please also Globally Lock any accounts that may be running spambot scripts that could be facilitating this mass account-breaking attempt. By the way, even though I only had 1 hacking attempt from this LTA so far, I'm changing my password after this. LightandDark2000 (talk) 19:36, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

And... Within the last minute, this LTA tried cracking my account again (multiple times, this time around). Just how stupid is this vandal? Please at least Globally Rangeblock the involved IPs. And by the way, I really don't care if this feature is still in Beta Testing, but WE NEED TO KNOW which IPs (on new devices) are trying to crack our accounts. LightandDark2000 (talk) 19:58, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
The security team is monitoring and mitigating this attack. No action needs to be taken by the stewards at this time. BWolff (WMF) (talk) 20:00, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
Also note, the last 4 failed login attempts to User:LightandDark2000's account are not related to the ongoing mass account login attempts issue. BWolff (WMF) (talk) 20:03, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
If the WMF Staff or any of the Stewards are aware of the IP(s) responsible for the hack attempts, they need to block them off with Global Rangeblocks. Otherwise, this hacking attempt (which is still in progress right now) will just continue until the LTA grows tired of it. By the way, one of the newer "failed login attempts" was labeled as coming from a "new device", and I'm currently editing from the same computer I usually edit from. LightandDark2000 (talk) 20:05, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
Yesterday I also has received 1 hack failed attempt message, my account are strong password, those LTA is unable to hack. SA 13 Bro (talk) 20:34, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
I think that the LTA is trying a password combination on a bunch of accounts without any serious attempts to actually crack them (with the possible exception of some admin accounts). They might be using a leaked password list. LightandDark2000 (talk) 20:36, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
Right, they using a leaked password from any list and of course were get hack easily, this web site is a good example to test your password strength. SA 13 Bro (talk) 20:45, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for LTA Willy on Wheels/Fuerdai*** vandal socks

Status:    Done

Obvious sock accounts of the cross-wiki LTA User:Willy on Wheels, also recently known as the "Fuerdai vandal". Please check the underlying IPs for more sleepers, and also Globally Rangeblock the underlying IP range for at least 3-6 months (at least a year if open proxies/VPNs are involved), to prevent further cross-wiki abuse. Judging by the account names, it looks like this LTA might be starting a new sockfarm. LightandDark2000 (talk) 01:50, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Really that obvious? IMHO having nothing to do with the person whom sufficiently experienced people refer to “Willy on Wheels”. @LightandDark2000: please, consult some seasoned vandal busters from en.Wikipedia, and only then pose as an expert yourself. You utterly miss the point currently. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 05:25, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
User:Buzziccant Fluerdaai is quite an obvious duck - it is a direct match to derivatives of "Fuerdai/Fluerdai". Also review each of the listed accounts' contributions; they all vandalize the same articles that WoW is known to vandalize recently, and their vandalism styles are very similar. I'm familiar enough with this LTA's vandalism to know what I'm looking at, and considering both the articles vandalized and the usernames used, this is definitely WoW. LightandDark2000 (talk) 06:19, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
The person possessing Special:CentralAuth/Willy on Wheels was active in 2004. Yes, in 2004 – follow one damn hypertext link in the CentralAuth interface to reach these data. The Chinese vandal made some copycat vandalism during the last year or two—after ∼12 years, eh?—but it does not turn him into the original Willy. Again, LightandDark2000, go to ask several Wikipedians who can remember something from 2004–05 before returning to argue the next time. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:41, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
There have been multiple Stewards and CheckUsers who referred to the other blocked/locked sock accounts as socks of LTA Willy on Wheels (or WoW), so those Stewards/CUs have probably made the connection to the original LTA. The same applies to these accounts, given the identical editing habits/usernames. (Examples: [11], [12], etc.) By the way, when I said "obvious", it was addressing it to the Stewards/CUs familiar with this LTA, not anyone who happens to read these reports. LightandDark2000 (talk) 06:46, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
Any random Incnis Mrsi who happens to read these reports… well, when did this Incnis Mrsi begin to edit? And when most of these “Stewards/CUs having probably made the connection to the original LTA” begun to edit? And who are these persons namely, indeed? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:55, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

I did admin work on enwiki 2004-2006. Willy on Wheels was page move vandalism, e.g. Guanaco -> Guanaco on wheels. I don't know how many people were behind the vandalism, but it was relatively destructive and well-known. The phrase "on wheels" became equivalent to a pirate flag. "Willy on Wheels" meant "a dick who did page-move vandalism", and I believe this definition is what stewards and CUs have used recently. Guanaco (talk) 11:09, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Of course, I can remember what did constitute the trademark “… on Wheels” vandalism. But look at en:Category:Wikipedia long-term abuse – Active please. It is not classified by vandalism modes (blanking, gibberish, user-pages, hoaxes, page-move, surreptitious…) or—more generally—abuse modes, but is classified by abuse sources. Each of the sources is presumed to be physical person with specific range of affected topics, geographical location, and other traits ascribed to human individuals. For what on Earth should one link an account owned presumedly by the old Willy (who is not vandalising anything for about a decade) from a thread about the modern Chinese-related vandal?

Although there was no good reason to believe that the master account Michelemassa595959 maybe a sock of INC, but the sock account Michele59massa5959okqwokqwokokqw could be possible meat-puppet and so on. Therefore, I have changed the master tag on English Wikipedia. SA 13 Bro (talk) 18:07, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

I presume that the Stewards must have some data that either behaviorally or technically links the "Michelemassa" sockfarm to INC. Nonetheless, both socks mentioned here are socks of cross-wiki LTA users, so they should both be globally locked. LightandDark2000 (talk) 04:05, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

It is up to the whole community to analyse accounts behaviorally—not specifically a stewards’ task—while technical indicators are not very effective against highly skilled baddies. “Globally banned user” is a higher-level alert than “cross-wiki abuse”. There are thousands of confirmed socks—by common abusers—whom nobody cares to get locked. Some of them are active cross-wiki (many examples here). On the other hand, an account belonging to a globally banned person has to be locked not because it engages in actual abuse anywhere, but because its mere existence goes against the policy of Wikimedia. It means, an “LTA expert” making a statement like “⋯ is INeverCry” assumes some responsibility about identification of the account with a banned abuser, which is especially important if the account does not look obviously malignant. A steward is not expected to conduct analysis for every bad account reported by a Wikimedian in good standing. I hope that some people with formal authority here can eventually educate LightandDark2000 whose irresponsible attitude already causes a considerable administrative overhead.

Global lock for Spambot LTA Black magic specialist sockfarm

Status:    Done

Obvious socks of the Spambot LTA User:Black magic specialist. These accounts all use the same naming patterns and/or have the same spam behavior. Some accounts might not be directly related, but are still obviously spambot attempting to promote/scam using the same fake services. Some of these accounts have been active within the last 4 months (including the first 8 accounts listed). This LTA is known for mass-socking and serial spamming across multiple Wikimedia Projects. Please check the IP range(s) of the recent accounts for more sleepers, and Globally Rangeblock the underlying IP Range(s) of the accounts to prevent further cross-wiki abuse. LightandDark2000 (talk) 08:05, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Cross-wiki vandalism. This is possibly the same as Skiyomi / Wild Draw Four, although I could be wrong since there is no CU data (the other two accounts are confirmed, however). -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 14:24, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

Hello @PlyrStar93: I have several remarks. Topmaniac has admitted to be Skiyomi / Wild Draw Four, cf. [16]. I have looked at en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Skiyomi and I think it should mention 96.31.192.0/20. I am making this suggestion because I have created #Global block for 96.31.195.0/20 on 5 May 2018, and I have noticed that:
  • the vandalisms by 96.31.192.0/20, by 209.239.96.0/20, by 216.49.96.0/19 and by the accounts are identical
  • Wild Draw Four has canceled one edit by 96.31.199.210 ([17]) and this behavior is identical to the one of Sierpnia, who has canceled one edit by 209.239.105.24 ([18])
  • the IP provider is always Perry-Spencer Communications, Inc.
Regards --NicoScribe (talk) 22:11, 8 May 2018 (UTC)
Just stopping in here to say that I know I have not behaved myself well at all on any of these projects. And though I don't like the idea of being locked, I understand if I am, considering the trouble I've caused here. But I would ask that, as long as I don't vandalize any more, that my IP addresses and ranges aren't blocked so my actions won't have negative impacts on other people who might want to contribute here. Thank you. Topmaniac (talk) 11:07, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
@Topmaniac: that is great, but the stewards must remember that:
I have limited the list above to the promises + vandalisms by your confirmed accounts, even if you made identical promises + vandalisms by using your IP ranges. --NicoScribe (talk) 08:31, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
Wow. I didn't realize I had repeated myself so much. Though seeing all that is hard, I guess it's good that you brought it up, as I have a tendency to try to forget that some things (like my previous accounts being locked) ever happened. I would love to say that things are different this time and that I have truly changed now, but I guess the only way to prove that is by not vandalizing in any way for a long period of time, whether logged in or not.Topmaniac (talk) 10:51, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Unsure why isn’t this person formally banned in any wiki as a persistent sinkhole for human resources with any hope of reform lost (a precedent in en.Wikipedia). Note that I am frequently empathic to people repressed in Wikipedia. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 13:03, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

What do you mean by "formally banned"? And Ido not think I am a sinkhole of any kind.Topmaniac (talk) 13:08, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

I don't think such an action is really necessary in this case, to be honest. Topmaniac (talk) 10:48, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
  • FWIW I support a global lock. I really hate the idea of permanent excommunication, but sometimes it's necessary to prevent disruption. In this instance I think the evidence that this editor is NOTHERE is incontrovertible. I'm all for 2nd chances and in some cases even a third. But we are way beyond that. This is a serial vandal and liar. Enough. -Ad Orientem (talk) 23:45, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
But I have not vandalized or lied for a little while now. And I do not intend to start again. I don't want any more trouble here. Topmaniac (talk) 00:03, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
@Topmaniac: then stop hanging on Meta-wiki and go everywhere your contributions are appreciated. After as little as two weeks of positive contributions—indicated in Special:CentralAuth/Topmaniac—without meddling into administrative affairs I could change my mind on the case. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:22, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
I just want to say that I'm talking here because I think I should be able to tell my view of this case since it involves me. And I think at least some of my contributions here on Meta are appreciated. I have been thanked a few times for my edits that were undoing vandalism on someone's talk page and another project's talk page. But I will try to go contribute to a wider variety of projects and show that I can be a valuable contributor here. Topmaniac (talk) 11:15, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

For the most part, that's User:TryToBeFunny. zzuuzz (talk) 15:03, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
The first 2 accounts listed here appear to be JarlaxleArtemis socks, though. The shock/malware sites listed in the edit summaries are exact duplicates of JA's past malware-spreading attempts. LightandDark2000 (talk) 05:03, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Grawp is a meme used by at least three current impersonators, including TryToBeFunny who is based on another continent, and many others in the past. For the real JA see my report below. zzuuzz (talk) 05:07, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Is BlyatPutin a TryToBeFunny sock then? If so, it looks like we have an imitation/vandal-spam issue here. LightandDark2000 (talk) 05:11, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Yes. There are several LTA memers around including that Feurdai chap. They are each given renewed life every time they are tagged or their name is invoked. See this zzuuzz (talk) 05:20, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for LTA WoW/Fuerdai vandal socks (7)

Status:    Done

Another sock of the LTA "WoW"/Fuerdai. Serial vandalism at wheelchair, which WoW socks have recently targeted. Please check for sleepers. By the way, can someone seriously please Globally Rangeblock all of this vandal's recently abused IP ranges? The amount of block evasion/serial vandalism that I'm seeing from this LTA is beyond ridiculous. By the way, any open proxies/VPNs that this vandal is using (probably most of the IPs behind the socks) need to be Globally Rangeblocked for over 1 year. LightandDark2000 (talk) 05:27, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Cyp (talk) 13:25, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Just a note, the account mocking Gilliam is probably a sock of Cruizir, not WoW, because Gilliam had earlier blocked an IP sock of Cruizir on the English Wikipedia. Anyway, this sock also needs to be locked, due to the cross-wiki abuse from this LTA. LightandDark2000 (talk) 13:41, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
The account was created shortly after a failed attempt at creating “Gilliam on wheeIs”. I don't know whether that means they're all the same vandal, or which is pretending to be which, or whether they even know who they are themselves. Cyp (talk) 14:30, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Can you please also globally rangeblock the underlying IPs (or extend the current rangeblock to locally block him on Meta), because this vandal is using his IP access on Meta to create/move sock accounts. If the range is already globally rangeblocked, it's obvious that he is using abusing the range locally to create socks on this site and then use those socks to vandalize other projects.

A long-term abuser Willschmut is locked globally.

He repeatedly uploading new versions in highly sensitive maps of Israel without discussion.
