Vandalism by IP 209.53.180.150[edit]

Hello Vieque,

I realize that this is probably out of the scope of what you can do, but I'm hoping you would know where to redirect this message?

The IP 209.53.180.150 is a public IP utilized by the Vancouver Public Library's Central Branch. There appears to be a user (or perhaps some sort of bot that piggybacks off the IPs of the VPL's Central Branch - I honestly can't say for certain) who has been consistently vandalizing wikipedia with the same sort of vandalism that you caught on.

I only happen to be the current user of the particular workstation with the IP address noted above - as it is a public workstation, almost anyone can use this workstation - but I have noticed this happening with other workstations at the VPL. I've mentioned this to another user for a different VPL IP.

If you could pass this along to someone who might be able to create some sort of log or maybe find someway to action this issue - if it's possible, as I understand that if it's an individual, the person could easily just find an unblocked workstation and continue their vandalism again. Noting that, I'm afraid the warning will probably fail as a deterrent because of vandal can easily move to another computer while this workstation is blocked.

Thank you.

(Apologies for not signing this message properly - I'm afraid it would only link to the IP address that's being abused by the vandal.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.53.180.150 (talk) 20:48, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
