Hello. I am from China and I'd like to contribute to wikipedia, but this
is not easy / possible because we cannot access wikipedia from inland
(the great firewall) and my usual method accesssing wikipedia (through
ssh -L 80:en.wikipedia.org:80 my_server_in_german) can allow me to visit
wikipedia but do not allow me to edit it ("open proxy, your host IP
address is detected to be belonging to a hosting company").

Can I have an account on your host (or maybe not an account, any means
let me access wikipedia from a host that is not in datacenter) so that I
can go on editing wikipedia?

     I. this account don't need to have any privilege but only able to
        do TCP port-forward, or if you can set up stunel for me you
        don't need to create an account (the connection between your
        host and mine must be SSLed because our firewall is context
    II. your host better be online most of time, even in the night;
   III. I'll give you my public key so that you don't need to open
        password authentication of sshd;
    IV. even if IP address is not fixed, if there are dynamic domain
        name set up, I can also use that;
     V. If there are better ideas how I can edit wikipedia, please let
        me know;

My public-key (long line!):


P.S. I use my root to connect because normal user cannot open port 80,
hope this is not a problem. (having a port number like 8080 is not so
convenient for sometimes I need to access it behind restrictive LAN
