Global blocks and local blocks

Hi Anton...I noticed you have unblocked two IPs blocked locally by the abuse filter here and here. While I get the thinking, the reality is that there can be reasons for blocking an IP locally in addition to locally (though, in fairness, there can be reasons to blocking a user locally in addition to globally locking, though spam only accounts are more of an exception to that at least in TestWiki's case). As we're currently testing the abuse filter locally, my preference is to let the local abuse filter blocks expire naturally, as it becomes much easier to track, rather than seeing unblocks.

Oh, okay. Thanks for you clarification.
