Allow 'Muted users' notification preference to support IP ranges
Open, LowPublic

Description

Proposed behavior

If a user provides an IP range as an input in the 'Muted users' preference, all notifications that come from within that IP range should not be delivered to that user.

This could either be for just IP edits or both IP + user actions within that IP range. But would this be an area for Privacy concern? a way for bad actors to guess + test notification system.

just IP edits

This would be good.

both IP + user actions within that IP range

This would be a privacy violation. Any user could find the IP range of any user that sends them notifications.
