Enable the "block" and "rangeblock" functions of Extension:AbuseFilter[edit]

Since sysops still must whack the incredibly obvious spammers triggering Special:AbuseFilter/14 (with no false positives), I'd like for the 'block' function to be enabled (usable by sysops modifying the abuse filter) so we could just ignore that spammer completely. If there are any false positives all that's needed is for the user to contest it on the talk page.--Jasper Deng (talk) 03:56, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

+1 from me as well. For filters that are made to stop spam, it seems nonsensical that they are unable to fully achieve that goal by forcing sysops to then go and "clean up" afterwards. Once this gets enough support, it'd likely be worth poking someone with cluster access on IRC or bugzilla. --Skizzerz 14:59, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

Neutral Neutral for now. While I can understand why you wish to use this feature, I have to say that you should be extremely careful with it. Trijnstel (talk) 15:55, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
Uh, too late, it's being implemented right now.Jasper Deng (talk) 16:44, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Yes Done I'm not sure when the change was deployed or by who, but it has been. I've set filter 14 to auto-block. --Krenair (talkcontribs) 14:01, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
