[Foundation-l] Planned change to default IP blocking behavior

A few months ago the ability was added to limit IP blocks to allow 
logged-in contributions to continue. This allowed finer-grained blocking 
of troublemakers on shared IPs (schools, AOL etc).

There's some suggestion to make this the default mode. I wanted to 
announce this ahead of time since it will change what happens when 
admins make a block without manually clicking something extra.

If there's no serious objection, we'll go ahead and change this in a few
