suggestion is similar in kind to what had already been proposed,
the main object to it was that it would create too much work for our
already constrained resources. The addition of rate limiting is a technical
solution that may or may not be feasible.
The people on this list can best answer that.
Does anyone know of any extensions that do something similar to the rate
limiting that he described? Force edits into a queue to be reviewed
(sort of like FlaggedRevs), but limit selected users to only a
single edit? I can't imagine something like that would be hard to modify
to pull from the list of Tor nodes to get its list of users.
AbuseFilter can rate limit per account globally, and edits via tor
have an abuse filter variable set. So a global filter (and all wikis
would have to enable global filters... which is another political
discussion) could be used to rate limit tor edits, and also tag any
that are made.
The review queue I'm not sure about.. not sure if FlaggedRevs can keep
a queue of edits with a particular tag.
I'll take a look at the TorBlock extension and the FlaggedRevs extension
code and see what I can see.
