[QA] Selenium_user blocked on English Wikipedia

In the MobileFrontend test suite is a build that targets the production
English Wikipedia.  On several occasions over the last few months rogue
tests from that build have created test pages in production.

This happened again yesterday, and as a result, I removed en.m.wikipedia.org
from all the Mobile browser tests [1] and Zeljko has deleted the
MobileFrontend build that targets production completely, so this should not
happen again.

However, as of this morning and because of these test pages, the
Selenium_user is blocked indefinitely on English Wikipedia [2].

I am inclined to continue to have Selenium_user blocked in production, I
think it is a good idea.

If you have any reason to use the Selenium_user in production, please let
me know in the next twenty four hours or so.
