#3544: Plugin Admin: IP Tracker

 We used to have a tool to check the IP address of submissions and compare
 to all others. This was useful to swiftly find people who were making
 serial plugins accounts to avoid previous restrictions.

 {{{ /plugins/admin?ip= }}}

 It works much like the User Card (see an image here -
 walkthrough/ ) and the Author Lookup ( https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-
 admin/tools.php?page=authorcards ) but is missing as a look up by IP.

 This would be very helpful to hunt down serial abusers.
