    Looks like CSF is one of the most popular cPanel security plugins. How does one stop CSF Plugin from emailing alerts about Permanent Block IP? EG:

    Code:
    Time:     Fri Sep  6 17:45:37 2013 -0400
    IP:       112.111.173.140 (CN/China/-)
    Failures: 20 (ftpd)
    Interval: 300 seconds
    Blocked:  Permanent Block
    
    Log entries:
