Description seth 2008-05-12 09:26:04 UTC
the blacklist-users (administrators) should have the opportunity to chose whether a regexp should be blocked on articles _only_ or on arcticles _and_ their discussion-pages. this could be done for example by a special parameter like
 A  \.example\.org/foo
 AD \.example\.org/bar
or by a separated blacklist, one for articles only and one for articles and their talk-pages.

this feature would be a _great_ enhancement, because quite often many talk-pages are quasi-blocked after a new blacklist entry is made.

This is probably not a problem since bug 1505 is done now. The spam blacklist now prevents only /new/ additions of blacklisted links.
Comment 2 seth 2008-05-21 08:03:25 UTC
actually you're right. the reason i gave is obsolete since bug 1505 was fixed. there's another (smaller) reason, but that can be worked around:
after an _informative_ link was blocked (just because of spamming and _not_ because of its content), it can be still useful to talk about that link in discussions. so in discussions one can just use nowiki-tags (or hope that the link was already mentioned before).
so i will mark this bug as a dublicate of 1505.
