Hi, please do not assign tasks to people without their agreement and if they cannot fix these tasks. :)

I can imagine that this might be intentional; either https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/operations/puppet/+/368775/ etc which needs to be reevaluated due to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T187716 or other means related to abusive behavior.

I think it was something related to #flea-attacker-mitigation which included a full swing on phab? (CF T198974: Rate-limit is too harsh and affects human users)

@SandraF_WMF Do you happen to remember if you got that IP address before connecting to your VPN? As it seems to belong to an Indian hosting company - https://hostroyale.com
