You have kept 'protect', which I am guessing overrides the
'autoconfirmed' that you removed.

You have also kept 'Edit membership to global groups' and 'Manage
global groups', which means you can change these permissions at any
time.  When you have time, I think it is necessary to explain why you
need those, or to relinquish them.
