It is not the blocklist which is useful. By blocking _users_
I just mention that this is a spammer/bot, so we have a chance
to clean up the dead users.  And since autoblock by IP is
enabled by default it triggers too.  I will uncheck the checkbox
the next time I'll block a user account.  It'd be nice to uncheck
it by default, too.
