I have recently been reporting open proxies to the Proxy Inquisition established by Cardinal Hinoa, but I require assistance, as one man cannot possibly report proxies on his own. This is why I created this contest. You may think that reporting proxies is a boring, laborious process, but this is a special occasion, as I am rewarding people who report proxies. This is the challenge: whoever reports 100 proxies to the Proxy Inquisition shall be rewarded with this. Detailed below are just a few sites where one can find open proxies:

Just copy the proxies you see there and paste them onto this page under the header Unblocked Open Proxies with this: *{{IP|}} ( is just an example. You paste the proxy you have found in its place.) Soon afterwards, Cardinal Hinoa will execute them in an orderly fashion. Just make sure that the proxy you are reporting has not already been reported or blocked.

The contest has now begun. Go forth, my brethren, and may Sophia give you her blessing! --General Insineratehymn 02:11, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, if we block all of these, do you think those "proxy vandals" would stop appearing? --AAA! (AAAA) 09:45, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
It seems like a long shot, but it's worth a try. --General Insineratehymn 00:34, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
It's a waste of time and a waste of resources in my opinion. Blocking an IP that has never been used, and is likely never to be used, just means the server has more of a list to check each time someone edits. I don't know what the solution to proxies is, but I don't believe this is it -- sannse@fandom (talk) 08:50, 16 March 2007 (UTC) (yes, that's my non-staff sig, this is not an official opinion)
Alright, so what do you suggest. --General Insineratehymn 00:37, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
See vandalism, block the bugger. -- sannse@fandom (talk) 10:01, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
But he will keep coming back using another proxy. We need to strike preemptively and block the proxies before they can be used. --General Insineratehymn 13:53, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
I agree with Insinerater. --AAA! (AAAA) 02:19, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Shock and awe! But seriously, if it's going to put strain on the server, we do need to think again. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 09:29, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

striking preemptively is all very well - if you know where he's going to land. As it is, you just force the servers to check every edit for 6 million proxies, missing the 24 million that the git is actually using. -- sannse@fandom (talk) 14:47, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

If we have these open lists of exploitable proxies, so do the spambot operators. Sooner or later, they will be used. MediaWiki will check SORBS (if $wgEnableSorbs = true, there's also an $wgEnableOpm 'not yet actually used') but checks no other lists. If SORBS hasn't blacklisted a proxy, we must.
