Unupdated default value, wrong according to other docs and reality on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/blocked-host.html .

How to repeat:
Go to: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/blocked-host.html

Where it says:

By default, mysqld blocks a host after 10 connection errors.

Suggested fix:
It should say:

By default, mysqld blocks a host after 100 connection errors (10 before 5.6.6).
