Thailand Blocked From Editing Wikipedia

See wikipedia uses your proxy ip to enforce bans. Consider this fact and the fact that everyone in Thailand is split among 20 proxy servers and guess how long my IP stays un-banned at a stretch. Shitty.

On the bright side the talk page for my IP is pretty amusing:
