so what happens if a person whois grey listed makes a
valid change do they
get added to whitelist.

What would be the policy for getting added / removed
I would say that:
0) Firstly, the grey/blacklist only takes effect when you try to save a
page, unlike a .htaccess ban.
1) Grey/blacklist control is entirely manual, done by the admins. No
2) If you're on one of the lists, the warning message that you receive when
you try to save an edit should include a contact form or link to a contact
form where you can say "hey, I'm a white hat!" - the admin would then
explicitly whitelist their /24 block. Of course, if they were lying, splat.
I forgot to mention another thing that came up in discussion - there should
probably be a "flag this page for review" link somewhere on every page. That
would take you to a form that says "You have indicated that you think this
page should be checked by a site administrator. Please enter the reason:"
and have three boxes: reason for flassing (mandatory), name (optional) and
email (optional). The submitted page would then get added to a simple queue
for inspection by the site admins.
Right, I'm off out. Merry Christmas one and all!
