--- Comment #21 from T. Gries <m...@tgries.de> ---
"WORKSFORME" is the wrong status for closing. As I wrote in the title and as
reported by me, at least some persons request to be able to edit wikipedia
article via TOR. 

As mentioned in the book cited above

Peter Wayner "Disappearing Cryptography" Third edition pages 225-227, 2009.
ISBN 978-0-12-374479-1

Pages 225-227 Chapter 10.7.3 "Stopping Bad user":

"bad users of the onion routing network can ruin the reputation of other users.
The Wikipedia, for instance, often blocks TOR exit nodes complete because some
people have used the network to hide their identities while defacing the wiki's
entries..."

In the further passages Peter Wayner explains a "one straight-forward solution
is to use some form of certificates with a blind signature, a technique that
borrows from some of the early solutions for building anonymous digital cash"
(A typical example with "Alice" follows - must read this).

there exist solutions.

As long as this is not solved, the request at least is valid. If you do not
want to fix it now, it is WONTFIX, and not WORKSFORME.
