Grants:IdeaLab/Separate conflicting users instead of punishing

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Separate conflicting users instead of punishing
For the abuse filter, a parameter is needed to set-up a user separation filter, where 2 conflicting users or user groups cannot edit a page for a certain time period after the other has edited a page. See phabricator Ticket 125723
