If you are interested in contributing:

While you are free to continue to edit as, and be identified by, your IP address, you might prefer to create an account (they're free!), or log in if you already have one. If you create an account, your IP address will not be displayed and you will face fewer editing restrictions.

Hello bunchanumbers, and welcome to the clubhouse. Dress code is casual. Why not pull up a goat and create an account? wassaiLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 15:20, 23 December 2008 (EST)

I see that you welcomed him back in December, but their contributions page lists their first edit as being in February. Was their earlier edit deleted? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 21:40, 8 February 2009 (EST)
I assume so. WēāŝēīōīďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:02, 8 February 2009 (EST)
Doesn't matter anyway, just a proxy. Chris Fanshaw 22:32, 8 February 2009 (EST)
Not just any proxy—it's a proxy that edits at RWW, which is why my interest was raised. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:23, 8 February 2009 (EST)
hey guys, this is an anonymous proxy through Looks like several unrelated people have used this IP to edit in the past, judging by context. (talk) <<this is too, btw.
Why do you need a proxy for editing RW? Scarlet A.pnggnostic 17:41, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
Gotta' love how it took them a year to respond, though. 04:02, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
And a big fuck you to the asshole who was editing with this proxy at the same as I was. Get off anonymouse when I'm using it. Your crap post got the anonymouse IPs vandal binned. (talk) 19:06, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
Why is it somehow wrong for someone else to do exactly what you're doing? Anyway - since this is a proxy that's been used for libel and personal attacks, and since anyone innocent can just stop using it, I have put this address in the vandal bin. It apparently was not there before but thanks for the idea. -- Mei (talk) 19:15, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
Mei - I didn't make a vandal edit. READ the edit. I gave out the little known but 100% true information about the Cp-Fab-Five google group used by TK to discuss the other CP Sysops. It's known to several Rationalwiki users. And READ the RW "vandal bin" description. Binned IPs can edit after 30 minutes. (talk) 19:52, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
These edits are why this address is binned: [1] [2] [3] [4]. If it bothers you, try using one of the other five hundred million open proxies. -- Mei (talk) 20:00, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
Mei. Read carefully. Try to understand how this works. This IP is an anonymous proxy open to be used by anyone. The edits you referenced were all made in the past, by unrelated people. Only one edit was made by me. The edit about TK's cp-fab-five group. "Vandal binning" is done in response to a vandal post and lasts 30 minutes, then the IP can again edit. Vandal binning for prior posts does not affect anyone who made those edits back then. I was also responding to your post in which you said: "I have put this address in the vandal bin. It apparently was not there before but thanks for the idea" - by pointing out that the IP had indeed been binned, but by the time you came along, the 30 minutes had passed, so it was no longer binned. I hope you understand now how vandal binning works? And no, it doesn't bother me that the IP was vandal binned. Only that you have so little understanding of anonymous proxies that you assume that all the edits were made by the same person. (talk) 00:44, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
Fail. This IP, ending in 152, was not in the bin before your post. Your IP, ending in 82, was. -- Nx / talk 00:54, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
Repeated vandalism from the third category may prompt use of the vandal brake, thus limiting the vandal to no more than one edit per thirty minutes
  1. Unless there was a huge policy change I didn't notice, the vandal bin is permanent and limits your edit rate. It isn't a period where you can't edit... that would just be a block.
  2. Amazingly, I do understand what an anonymous proxy is. I reasoned that it doesn't matter if it affects innocent users, since using this address is voluntary. -- Mei (talk) 00:59, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
The main issue here is, you've deliberately made it impossible to identify you or separate your edits from those of other people. If you do that, it means you can no longer say 'that wasn't me'. There is no way to prove it. -- Mei (talk) 01:14, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

LOL. The reason is obvious, I don't want any chance of my identity being revealed through my IP. In the past, there has been no problem using an anonymous proxy to give out inside info on CP and TK, and it's been happily received, but after this, there is no reason for me to come to this wiki again. So any future posts from this IP will not be from me. It's been fun, but this site has really gotten some hostile users since I joined 3 years ago. Goodbye. Cue Mei for the rebuttal post. (talk) 01:18, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Meh, I see no reason not to unbin you. Hang on a second while I pull up the page...--The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 01:24, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
EC - If you create an account, you can continue using this proxy without being affected by the vandal bin. And FTR I'm not hostile, I'm mainly confused. I'll be sorry if you leave. -- Mei (talk) 01:25, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
I've unbinned you mainly because I see no reason to keep you there, and also because () is no a legitimate reason to vandal someone, especially an anonymous proxy. We're not CP, and I have no reason to doubt that this user is not lying. --The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 01:27, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
I left the comment blank because my explanation was on this page. -- Mei (talk) 01:29, 18 March 2010 (UTC)


Can someone please remove from the bin? It's an anonymous proxy. (talk) 18:28, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Last bin entry for this IP:

'tisn't in the bin. 18:33, 29 June 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
Just happened again. I verified that that is the correct IP. The block ID is #273. (talk) 18:37, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
Wrong IP, Susan. Special:VandalBin/ (talk) 18:38, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
