Can you edit without using the open proxy? If not,

I quote from my request for mediation:
Unfortunately the mediation process is not really
functional at this time. So
for now at least the ArbCom is not expecting people
to seek mediation as part
of 'trying and failing to resolve the issue using
the other steps of the
dispute resolution process.'
Thank you for your reply. I think I should add James
W. Rosenzweig's comment from my RfA as it has bearing
on the issues:
"As mediation seems to be at the crux of this, I'd
just like to note that, as a member of the MC and
apparently its future Chair (unless someone decides
they want the job), we don't have our act together
right now and are unlikely to in the next several
weeks. While certainly mediation can occur outside of
the MC, I think it's fair to say that right now
Wikipedia doesn't have a fully functioning formal
mediation process, though it certainly should by this
time next month. I don't know if that impacts your
decision, but thought you'd want to be aware, at
least. Jwrosenzweig 22:35, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)"
This state of affairs is lamentable. If mediation is
indeed to be a part of the Wikipedia dispute
resolution process then an effort must be made to keep
the structures functioning. Pity fewer people seem
willing to volunteer as mediators than are queuing in
line to become administrators so they can block and
ban people at will. Sad for Wikipedia.
