Description John Lucero 2005-02-25 21:19:35 UTC
when blocking an IP i noticed that it only prevents them from editing a page, i
suggest passing the ip to the apache for completly blocking an offender, instead
of just limiting their abilities..

Many/most IP addresses are shared or dynamically assigned. We don't want 
to block legitimate visitors from even *reading* the wiki if they are unlucky 
enough to share an IP with a jerk.
