Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Per the parent task at T254646, we should rename the TitleBlacklist extension

Also, when renaming it, it would be a really good time to namespace the extension!

Any bright ideas what we should call this one?

SpamBlacklist seems to have come to almost quorum at T254649#6887903

Alternatively we could just dump the feature into AbuseFilter and scrap the extension?

If you think merging functionality into Abusefilter a viable idea, that might welcome a dedicated task.

Despite discussing this at least as far back as Amsterdam (2013), apparently there wasn't a task, indeed. Filed: T279275: Move all the functionality of {Spam,Title}Blacklist extensions into AbuseFilter and retire them.

When we do this, could we also consider standarising the nomenclature on a hyphen separator?

At the moment the others are in the form Mediawiki:TARGET-blacklist

The TITLE series omits the hyphen and is Mediawiki:TARGETblacklist ==> Mediawiki:Title-denylist

Thanks.
