Thank you for the reply, ehansen.

My concern with that approach is that fail2ban will attempt to restore iptables rules whenever it is restarted.

In other words, if I were to remove the banned IP address directly, and then fail2ban had to be restarted for any reason, the IP address would again be added to the blacklist.
