I wonder why arbcom clerk AGK finds it necessary to edit through proxies? Particularly when it thoroughly messes up the edits.
For example, in this edit to Wikipedia talk:Requests for arbitration
which still stands, most of someone else's edit is deleted and
is inserted along with other weird stuff.
Then there's a string of edits to Jossi's talk page starting here
that does the same thing.
When I was a checkuser & admin, I used to block people who used proxies like that, for purely technical reasons: defective proxies damage content and people who use them need to stop.
Of course, nowadays the idea of blocking a Highly Valued User for any reason, even a technical one, is anathema.
