Does anyone know when the enwiki dump will get fixed?

In response to Fred, I doubt you will ever get any of the ISP's on 
anyone's side but their own.    They have no incentive to listen
and Wikipedia has a serious credibility problem with many of them due to 
the fact that any of the 600+ admins can file these
reports, and many of them are malicious and spoofed.  Your suggestion 
they should only come from the ARBCOM is a good
one.  Last time an administrator sent an ISP complaint in on me last 
year, the email was thrown in the trash -- and after they
reviewed the article on me and the press issues with the JFK story, they 
told me they won't ever accept them again from

There's also the problem with the Asian ISP's -- they could care less 
and won't respond, esspecially the ones in Taiwan --
I've tried.
