Since yesterday the blocklist of SORBS is used on the wikimedia
servers to block open proxies.
If someone is having troubles to edit now, here are the steps he can
do to solve the problem:
* he first has to determine the IP address wikipedia is blocking,
that's not too hard, it's on the blocking page
* then he has to get someone on another computer to check if it's an
open proxy. the procedure is described here:
* if it is, then he should complain to whoever controls the server to
fix the configuration
* if not, he should request a retest
) to be taken out of the list.
the status of the proxy might have changed since it was last scanned.
So we have to go to another project to get unblocked on wikipedia. This
is unbelievable and sickening
