Their moderators redirected the domain. They're welcome to return whenever.

Consider exposing this functionality to the post author

The feature likely doesn't provide enough value for this. It's a new surface area that moderators would have to monitor for abuse.

One step to prevent misuse would be to only allow the context to be a link to a post in the same community. Currently, it's possible to link anywhere.

It's another way for a moderator to impose their own spin on anything a poster posts.

Good point - this could be true. I don't think we'll remove this functionality unless we see it being misused, nor will we allow users to set the context for their own posts (because that adds a whole new surface for misuse that moderators will need to keep an eye on, and it's just not valuable enough of a feature to warrant that)

We could allow users to remove the context that a moderator has set for their post, and disallow moderators from setting a context for their content in the future.

In such case I would recommend just keeping a single salt for all banned IPs.

Sounds like peppering, which we're doing. We append a static value to the end of all IP addresses before hashing.

The addresses are useless to us if the hashes of two identical IP addresses are not the same.

Manually and individually, currently. Win is in the process of moving to Kubernetes.
