Reset counters on IP unblocking

Reset counters on IP unblocking

Hello,

Let’s say the IP 1.2.3.4 was blocked with BFM for 101 attempts to login with a wrong password, a customer of a hosting company calls/writes to a support department and asks to unblock his/her IP. OK, the IP is unblocked via Directadmin interface (a set of all necessary scripts for that is used). But a counter still shows 101 attempts of failed logins. And with a next only one failed authorization the IP gets into a banned list again.

So wouldn’t it be a good idea to reset a counter of failed attempts on IP unblocking? I’d really like to get it implemented.

Please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong or missed something.
