What does hashing 4 bytes accomplish? It would take like 1/20th of a second to brute force and reverse

Yea, I know that. I wouldn't literally just be using sha256, there would be a lot of salt (chosen at random; even if it makes the ban-system a lot less fool-proof). I haven't really thought about this much, since it's probably not going to happen, anyway.

I probably don't know as much about tech but why would you need a salt? I'm curious.
