I think consensus is ok, but when only create a rollback group, any local users can not add or remove that rights to users (It should be request to stewards).

Rxy added a comment to T166817: Globally block identifiable open proxies.

Hi @Rxy — Thanks for finding this ticket and commenting! I wasn't aware of PxyBot — it's good to find other examples of how this problem is being solved. It seems like the big difference between PxyBot and ProcseeBot is that PxyBot is reactive (checks IPs that make edits) while ProcseeBot is proactive (routinely harvests potential proxy IPs and checks if they are proxies.) They both seem like sane approaches — do you have any thoughts about ProcseeBot's methodology?
