Please take these as my studied observations of operations, though not with any technical background. Also noting that these observations are made from WMF wikis, viewing these through the perspective of an administrator at Metawiki, and having global sysop privileges.
We have edits that hit both global abuse filters (m:Special:Abuselog and local equivalents) and also appear in local Special:log/spamblacklist.
I would also note that I don't believe this it is always the case in that I believe that sometimes attempts will only log in log/spamblacklist and not hit abusefilters. (I have not tried to test this anywhere)
I queried this years ago, and was informed that the spam blacklist extension loads before the abusefilters extension, so the blacklisting should occur first and obviate the need for action in abusefilters.)
For the best use of abusefilters,, having known and already blocked spam appearing in the abuselogs is simply problematic both in terms of significant abuselog noise, but also from knowing whether an edit has hit or not. As an administrator, especially in SWMT, I would prefer to only have to chase down potential spam, not follow known blocked edits
So I am asking that there is some modification so that the spam blacklist is able to act significantly before the abuse filters so that we are not getting this overlap.
Alternatively, is there a means that we can tune abuse filters so that they can ignore edits from urls with domains in the global spam blacklists, knowing that extension spam blacklist is reliable. So some sort of masking faculty.
Thanks for your consideration
