Warning IP vandals[edit]

Jeff, it does not make sense… Especially when they use a dynamic IP which is virtually sure thing in this case (in fact in vast majority of cases). --jdx Re: 04:46, 21 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Jdx: Typical practice for dealing with anonymous vandals at en:WP:AIV has been to accept a full series of escalating vandalism warnings issued within a 24-hour period as justification for a vandalism block, and Twinkle's programming reflects that. I thought that was the standard here for COM:ANV.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 11:39, 21 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well, according to our COM:BP Accounts and IP addresses used solely for severely disruptive purposes such as automated spamming, serious vandalism or harassment may also be blocked without prior warning. Also our policy does not require a vandal to be warned multiple times (I don't know what "multiple" means in case of WP:VAN, I didn't find a definition there), it only requires the user to be appropriately warned. Anyway, the point is that an IP vandal almost for sure will not read the warning message due to technical reasons, so warning such users is just waste of time. Let them vandalize a bit more and then just block them (or not if they stop). And yes, I know that there are commited IP vandals who actively watch their talk pages and immediately "respond" to any messages. Face-smile.svg --jdx Re: 13:37, 21 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Jdx: Sadly, this community has not yet judged me fit to "just block them". :(   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 13:48, 21 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
