Request reason:

Hi! I use Tor to avoid traffic analysis. I frequently edit articles involving women in technology, and do not wish to be stalked, encounter trolls, be hacked, or deal with the usual crap because I'm female on Wikipedia. Is there a way to be exempted from the IP blocks on the Tor network for my user account? My IP address could easily be tied to my name and hence my physical address. I'd like a little anonymity. Just want to add articles about women in tech and the heirs to Grace Hopper without getting doxxed, kthxbai ;-)

Decline reason:

I'm going to skip the formalities and just address the situation. There is a way to edit to able to edit while your IP is blocked. The method is giving your account IP block exemption. The right is given only under exceptional circumstances. I apologize but I do not believe that your current situation qualifies as an exceptional circumstance.

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Please use {{unblock-auto}} instead; you aren't blocked directly and so without the information the -auto template requires, admins can't act on your unblock request. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 06:30, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Do you realise that when you are logged in to your account, only the very small number of people with Checkuser privilege can see your IP address? Even then, there are strict rules about when they are allowed to use the tool to check. Editors in general can't see IP addresses, and admins can't. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 07:50, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
