Open Proxies[change source]
- Usually, it is extremely easy to identify them, as when you search for them on Google, they show up in lists of anonymous / open proxies. Other times, you have to look them up through a proxy checker, which tries the access the proxy on a given port, usually 80 or 8080. Example service.

- How do you know the port? The link needs a port. SwirlBoy39 19:21, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
- It's usually 80 or 8080 (HTTP/S). You would put the name in like 127.0.0.1:80. BTW, if you are looking up Special:Contributions/184.108.40.206, he doesn't appear to be a standard proxy. I think he's behind a kind of proxy for mobile devices like cellphones. Inclusive disjunction (talk) 19:25, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

American Writers?[change source]
Just before you go on changing, please think about the following: Is Gabriel García Márquez (Nobel prize ofr Literature, 1982, I think; from Colombia, an American Writer? - Do we want him to be one, rather than one from Colombia? - Thanks. --Eptalon (talk) 15:17, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
- Probably not, but many other categories already follow the "American <occupation>" semantic. I would agree that it might be a little ambiguous, but to my knowledge, no one was ever "proud to be a resident of one of two continents with 'America' in the name." Perhaps American Eagle should change his name to "United States of American Eagle." But then that would look like an association of American Eagle stores as a sovereign country.
