Tracking bug for issues relating to the blocking mechanism and related interfaces.
Since I respond to a large number of requests for unblocking at en.wp, I'm quite
familiar with this problem: one vandal gets blocked on AOL, and three or four
legitimate editors are hit with the ensuing autoblocks. Perhaps it would be wise
to have the autoblocker ignore some or all of the main AOL IP ranges, such as

This is a *tracking bug* for all the issues; individual issues have their own
bugs. The intention of this is to be generic.
We now have a specific component for these issues, so I'm closing this bug in favour of that.
