In practice, soft-blocking proxies is the same as not
blocking them at
all. On the CheckUser list there is considerable opposition to what
appears to be a unilateral over-riding of both local and meta policy,
creating a new policy that might work for a little edited wiki but
would not be appropriate at all on wiki-en. I encourage the developers
to ensure that this change has wide acceptance at the local level and
support from the Foundation before implementing.
Seconded. Just blithely switching this on for en:wp is an
astonishingly bad idea.
