Description

Summary of the bug:

How to reproduce: Have an IP that's listed in spamcannibal, try to get it removed, find the page is owned by domain squatters but the blocklist is still working (????)

Trac threw up additional captcha checks for me, apparently my static IP is in whatever RBL this is/was. There's no way to remove any listing from this blocklist.
