No, I'd prefer not to change the configuration for this box.

Ideally down the road when we migrate WineHQ.org over to VMs we should 
setup a VM dedicated to hosting services for tests. (ftp/smtp/http/https 
etc.) This VM could have slightly lax security since it not hosting 
anything of importance.

The time of hosting nearly everything WineHQ.org related on a single 
Linux install should end.

Bantime is set to 86400 (1 day). So a ban should be removed after 1 day. 
I was not using recidive YET, but I am considering it.

I should note, the testnet VMs should not be getting banned when traffic 
is coming from the testnet network. I have a rule in place that ignores 
the rules for them.
