I got a report from a wiki-user with this error:

"Login error - Your IP address is listed
as an open proxy in the DNSBL used by
OpenStreetMap Wiki. You cannot create
an account (84.114.59.XX)"

Can anybody please tell me /which/ DNSBL is/are used?

Would be nice to mention this in the error message...

tnx /al

Thank you! Have you maybe considered https://www.projecthoneypot.org/ ? It's rather up to date for comment spam sources.

Any solution besides the difficult process of getting an ip removed from both of those lists?

Just to have the updated list (which I was trying to locate):


Right now it's proxies.dnsbl.sorbs.net, opm.tornevall.org, xbl.spamhaus.org and dnsbl-3.uceprotect.net
