Any wiki'ers on the list want to wiki things like this with campaign and
followup tasks? If you can write your congress/mp from a task list, why
not your favorite Tor unfriendly website, etc.

Sure, those are fixes for Tor et al's use. I was more addressing the
"proxies bad, let's put them in an A1" issue that affects everyone

Some of the manual substitutions could be take from the descriptors,
if people didn't enter silly/inaccurate CC codes in them.

I meant to say that there are at least two major IP location companies,
and a few others. Just say hi at the next geolocation conference ;)

I do suggest presenting at the next NANOG conference. That would
cover a lot of the network space, make introductions, etc.

Years ago I thought there were some crowdsourced IP location
projects. While not being commercial where ISP's would
perhaps be more inclined to input their provisioning tables, they
covered userland's knowledge and self-submittals pretty good.
These projects have to still exist?
