just got blocked on wiki.pine64.org

The actual reason for blocking was spamming, and when they blocked one account, the spammer just made more from the same IP. The length of block clearly takes into account that the spammer may hop IPs, and that other people may be affected by the block.

Anyway, the block is fixed now.

Here you can see how spammers have been flinging themselves at the wiki:
Those screen names are just..... wow.

Also it is quite common for mobile connections to be NATed through common IP addresses resulting in the same thing.

There are not enough IPv4 addresses to go around and so assuming that two users on the same IP address is abuse is not a safe assumption.

That's a totally different thing I was not talking about, and you're also incorrect, such IP bans work great against such spam.
