Description

Quite often there are requests to mark URLs as dead for domains which are whitelisted (most recently, T223011).

As a user with access to domain-wide settings, I quite often encounter domains which are whitelisted (or set to some other global status) but I have no idea why. So I can either remove the global status (potentially overriding an intentional setting and causing issues later on) or tell the user that the URL cannot be marked as dead (even though the original reason for placing the domain on the whitelist no longer holds).

I would like to be able to see the reason why a domain-wide status was changed.

Reasons are generally reflected in the logs. If there isn't any, then the bot whitelisted it because it suspects it cannot reliably assess the given domain.

With that being said, if there is no log domain level log entry present for a given URL, it happened automatically, and can likely be reset. Any user setting it to that state will leave a log entry behind. Just be aware that resetting a whitelisted URL/Domain, can trigger the bot to rewhitelist it if it continues to think it can't read the sites correctly.
