Comment field for user defined entries

When adding an item to any user defined field - block or allow - it would be very useful to have a metafield allowing a comment to be added in relation, as info like "requested by AMc 10-02-12" or "blocked for chat" is often very useful when it comes to keeping a list tidy and no larger than necessary.

    This is exactly what we need - I see the other comments are over 4 years old... is it still under review?

    This is extremely helpful when you inherit a SW install from a previous Admin. I used a variant of Guardian before it went closed that had that feature. Made it easy to find old entries for deletion and / or updating.

    That's useful when something is a definite permaban - a games site that you know you just want blocking - but where specific pages are unbanned for a week or so it would be helpful to be able to note who requested it, when it can be removed etc.

    It would also come in useful where CDN subdomains are unblocked as it's not always clear what they relate to, e.g. ytimg.com, msecdn.net and so on.
