I didn't realize that the Site.Blocklist-Honeypot was including items 
that may have already been blocked.  I think it would be very 
interesting to be able to see more information (whether the post had 
already been blocked, and why).

Apart from the honeypot, can you capture this type of information about 
posts that have been blocked on the site (regardless of the page)?  If 
so, it might be better to have that information displayed somewhere else 
(more info about all blocked posts) and leave the honeypot to display 
only information about new unblocked attack.
