Why do you find this sickening? This is the
internet. The SORBS
identifies open http proxies, which are usually *not* open through any
choice of the owner, but because the owner has not made them secure.
Using SORBS protects Wikipedia from the negligence of your ISP.
With the happy side effect of also protecting us from Waerth and a few
million Thais. Great!</sarcasm>
Presumably this is due to the activities of the Thai government rather
I still don't see why it should be regarded as "sickening" that Wikipedia
doesn't provide a one-stop proxy doctoring service. The developers and
systems people are run off their feet just keeping the servers running.
