The DB entries might be interesting for generating ban lists, etc.

Depending on how much invalid login attempts are going on, the email route could generate a lot of email traffic. However, if its pretty quiet an occasional email would be just fine.

Still, some mechanism should be in place to keep admins aware if bots are constantly trying to login, so that we can react accordingly (more IP bans, etc)

Thank you again!
