User Registration: Log more data as comment when user is banned

Going through https://login.wordpress.org/wp-admin/admin.php?page=user-registrations sometimes it's super easy to see why someone should be banned or not.

Right now, the only way to record anything is manually. We should automate as much as we can to lighten the load :)

This proposal has two parts:

  1. When someone is banned, we should track not just who did it but what tool they used.

For example: "Role changed to bpp_blocked by Ipstenu via ...." where via is maybe the main URL? (wordpress.org/support, wordpress.org/support/wp-admin, login.wordpress.org) That way we know what tool was used.

  1. When someone's banned via a backend tool (mostly login.wordpress.org) we should copy over their shared data.

For example, I spotted someone today with "forum bio: Louis Vitton Official Store is an exclusive store for the world’s best apparels for Louis Vitton Fan. Louis Vitton Official Store makes sure to offer customers the high-quality trendy apparels...." in their profile. It goes on to be an ad for the company with URLs etc.

We should be logging those so that if the next person goes 'Hey why is X blocked?' they can see that it as for a super spammy profile on submission.
