Description billinghurst 2012-05-14 11:57:46 UTC
When the page is used to globally block an IP address, the script exits to the url
with the text like 

    The IP address has been successfully blocked on all projects.
    Add another global block.
    You can block the IP on Meta as well ...

This is unhelpful as it doesn't show the history of the IP address, so one cannot see particularly problematic or regularly abused IP addresses. It would be more useful if the page returned to
and had the text above, and then the form and any previous IP history.

Thanks for your consideration

Should be relatively easy for a new developer to fix, adding easy keyword. Revert if you disagree (its just my opinion).
