False Positives

The cleantalk plugin is blacklisting legitimate IPs.

The 2 admin account IP's were blacklisted and now customers / users are reporting as blacklisted.

Eg. reported as blacklisted. Here is the cleantalk report when viewing that IP.

Why is this occurring? This is a real problem. Our Customers are being falsely blacklisted.
