Blocked/sharing? What is this?!
This is a shared IP address, with literally thousands of people using it. Apparently someone using this IP address has been blocked for some reason or another. Now everyone on this IP is blocked! What makes it even stranger is that the person blocked is an account! So what exactly is the point of having an account if anyone with the same IP will automatically be blocked as well if anyone with that IP makes real or perceived "bad" edits? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 08:43, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
The blocker is question is apparently someone called "Garzo". I went to the talk page of the account he blocked, and apparently "Garzo" blocked this entire IP range without first giving warning, yet other editors who had committed the exact same "editing crime" were not blocked, or even warned! This is clear bias and one-sidedness and also highly irresponsible on the part of "Garzo". I do not suppose that this "Garzo" person will respond to this message, as he apparently never responded to the account's queries about the blocking either! If any fairminded administrator is reading this however, some explanation and possible assistance would be very greatly appreciated. Thank you. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 08:47, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

This is the discussion page for an IP user, identified by the user's IP address. Many IP addresses change periodically, and are often shared by several users. If you are an IP user, you may create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other IP users. Registering also hides your IP address.
