Wikipedia IPv6 block for
« on: January 17, 2022, 08:04:53 AM »

I have just seen a blanket block by Wikipedia on the following network:

Editing from 2001:470:1000:0:0:0:0:0/36 has been blocked (disabled) by ‪ST47‬ for the following reason(s):
The IP address that you are currently using has been blocked because it is believed to be a web host provider or colocation provider.

Wikipedia has been notified of the issue, but it looks like needs to engage with wikipedia to make sure the network stays open.

Yeah, I've run into this myself last year. I remember beginning of 2021 everything was fine. But now it's blocked and ST47 seems unwilling to change it. No idea what happened. Looks more like one admin going rogue.

Is ST47 a person? Also, does / did this edit ban apply to all editors or just anonymous ones?
