Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.

You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Mike.lifeguard 2009-03-16 02:06:53 UTC
It is possible to create accounts which are formed like IP:, and blocking that really blocks instead of the username. This should not be the case - either such usernames are invalid, or this must block the user instead of the IP.
