The multiwiki MetaProject on open proxies seeks to identify, verify and block open proxies and anonymity network exit nodes. To prevent abuse or vandalism, only proxy checks by verified users will be accepted. All users are welcome to discuss on the talk page, report possible proxies, or request that a blocked IP be rechecked.

We've had an ongoing massive campaign to insert the same reference spamming type edit into a range of machine learning articles. I'd estimate at least 30 attempts over the year that I've been closely watching. The pattern is a batch / rash of edits by brand new ip's in a single geographic area. I see that the source of a previous batch is now blocked. They just started another burst, the same edit edits as before, this from three new (single edit) IP's in the same area in Russia, triple entering the same edit on one article in 2 days.
