[Mediawiki-l] Removing auto-blocking

One of my users cannot edit a page.  He is being automatically
blocked.  How do I remove this auto-block?  Un-blocking him won't
work.. he is still re-blocked at every edit attempt.

He is using a shared IP with some other users, none of which have been
editing pages.

I don't see a whitelist feature in 1.6.5's Special pages.  I'd rather
just kill this feature since the site is private anyways.

It's odd, since the user is being blocked because that same user has
used the same IP before.

Some items have been removed for privacy:

User is blocked
>From (wikiname)
Jump to: navigation, search
