Description

5 years ago
We need to implement a Django middleware which notices if the current HTTP request matches a current user ban, and if so makes sure the user is logged out before proceeding.

Optionally, when it does this, it could redirect to a page explaining that the user/IP/whatever is banned, and offering info on how to find out what happened/talk to someone who could lift the ban.

Fix bug 869480 and bug 809495: infrastructure for user bans.

This is a simple model for user bans, and a middleware which enforces
them. The middleware will log out any request from a banned user, and
show them a page which can explain that they're banned, and show the
reason for the ban, before letting them proceed to their requested
page.

A simple user-banning view (keyed off permission to create the UserBan
model) is also included, collecting appropriate details on who issued
the ban and why.
