A wrong login attempt from localhost should not trigger a ban (fail2ban) of localhost, because it would prevent other users from trying.

I have no idea whether that's the case currently, but it could be a concern due to Tor users joining mail/jabber/discourse services from 127.0.0.1.

  • discourse does not ban localhost
  • mailserver does not ban localhost
  • jabberserver does not ban localhost
