This works out to a 50% chance of unblacklisting an IP within 67 queries,
80% within 161 queries, 90% within 230 queries, and 95% within 299 queries.
While I applaud the effort, doesn't it seem kind of strange to have the
behavior of the server be non-deterministic?
If you don't want to bloat the infrastructure cache with TTLs for this, how
about a global or per-thread rate-limit instead?
