To do that, uncheck the second checkbox when blocking a spammer.

Gwern, please don't forget to disable autoblock when blocking spammers. I see MinibearRex and arundelo got blocked, and a few days ago I checked, and turned out my IP was blocked too! Autoblock doesn't seem to help with actual spam, but manages to cause inconvenience to the few users we have. --Vladimir Nesov 17:23, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
