[Mac] The automatic update option for blocklist should be removed

Reported by: someone Owned by: livings124

Description

99% of users who enable the blocklist would want this option enabled as well, so having this option in the UI is largely pointless. This option should be removed since it will only serve to confuse novice users. Expert users can always turn this off using defaults through the terminal.

Anything that checks a server automatically should be an option.

However, the blocklist function is not very useful without enabling automatic update. Bandwidth use could be minimized by disabling the blocklist feature by default and having Transmission check the file version and only download the list when necessary.

While I agree the blocklist is not as useful without automatic updates, the auto-update function would need to be disabled if a user manually adds blocklists. Any again, forcing auto-update without any option of disabling is a frowned-upon practice.
