Shingling334[edit]

2405:205:2108:53AD:FC82:1F4A:448F:1047 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RBLs · http · block user · block log) just showed up on Halloumi and repeated an edit made by the just blocked socks, but geolocates to India. Which of course doesn't mean that it isn't Shingling, since he has used lots of open proxies (helping us, since lots of proxies got blocked right after he had used them), and it isn't the first time I've seen Indian IPs doing typical Shingling-edits, I've seen lots of them, but haven't bothered do anything about it since they very quickly stopped editing. But since you've just taken a look at Shingling's latest sock I thought it might be worth taking a look on this one, to see if it's the same device/useragent that is being used here.

My apologies, Thomas.W, I meant to reply yesterday, but got sidetracked. I don't think that this is Shingling334, but I suppose that it's possible. There are other LTAs using that particular ISP, though, so it could easily be one of them just trying to confuse the situation. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 11:57, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
OK, thanks. You don't need to feel stressed if I ask a question, because I'm retired and in no hurry (if I feel a block is urgent because of ongoing disruption I post on WP:AIV, where a number of the regular admins seem to trust my judgement and block the IP or account I want blocked, without me needing to spill any beans...).
