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
