In Blocklist2, you can define multiple blocklist pages.
I am considering the unblock option because I understand the issue.
I'll work on it next.
The alternative script Hagan came up with only accepts one --
Farms can use Main.Blocklist to share a central blocklist and
Site.Blocklist as their individual blocklists. If the order of which
is parsed first ended up mattering, I would have to do some more
work. Better is to have an unblocklist as requested. People don't
need to use it. If only one person has a use for it, I'm willing to
customize the script and give it over privately, but even with a few
sites it could be useful. I have sites that probably will never need
to mention drug names, and one that does possibly need to. Same
issue, but not 100 wikis -- I've customized blocklists for all the
sites because of this issue, but it would be great if I didn't have to.
Regardless of what they do in the external world, multiples have
created an elaborately rich internal one, and sometimes punishing the
wicked outside the system just makes the wicked inside the system
feel all the more like they need to be punished also -- as outside,
so inside. How hypocritical to expect that the externals who made
huge mistakes must suffer for what they did, but expect the internals
who made huge mistakes to be absolved....it doesn't work that way.
