|Summary||0006362: Make set::hide-ban-reason default to 'yes'|
|Description||It is probably a good idea to make this the default, as people may be *LINEd by blacklists that expose the real IP address in like a dronebl url or the like. So setting this to 'yes' by default would be good for privacy.|
The set::hide-ban-reason option already exists for many years, but since April 2023 the IRCOps will see the real banned reason in QUITs, so that makes it more acceptable/nicer, I think (thanks to Chris for suggesting that back then).
Any thoughts or objections? :D

Koragg mentioned (sortof) that a default of 'yes' makes it harder for other users to audit/see why other users are getting glined and such, e.g. possibly promoting more oper abuse. Not sure if that is a perfectly valid reason but i thought about it some more and created a new option that is neither yes nor no, it is called 'auto' and fixes exactly the case that we want but does not do anything 'more' than that.

For set::hide-ban-reason add a new option `auto` and make it the default.
This will hide the *LINE reason to other users if the *LINE contains the
IP of the user. This to protect the privacy of the user for cases such
as a KLINE due to a blacklist with a DroneBL URL.
Other possible settings are `no` (never hide, the previous default) and
`yes` to always hide the *LINE reason. In all cases the user affected by
the server ban can still see the reason and IRCOps too.
