XFF Blocking not working locally, only globally
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As a CU I've now had two (maybe 3) instances where I have seen local blocks, and they have not affected editing on XFF. The one I did write down was about a hardblock, and XFF edits still getting through that. If I also remember correctly we had a rangeblock and a user used XFF to send emails when the "Block user from sending email" was set.

DQ, this one is my fault. I forgot to deploy a config change. I'll get that done asap.

Here's the config change

I've got the deployment scheduled for Monday morning (PDT), just in case it causes any unforeseen issues.
