Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When a moderator clicks on a user's IP address, it shows their location by GeoIP and the reverse DNS lookup. It would be helpful if we could also get a WHOIS lookup - the box could display who the registered owner was, and there could be a link to the full WHOIS query results. This would be useful when trying to determine if a potential spammer is associated with a service, if their WHOIS shows that they're posting from the company being advertised, etc.
