Usernames hidden by sysops still appear on [[Special:BlockList]]

Description

Sometimes users with offensive names are blocked by sysops. Often, the blocking administrator also hides the log entry in order to avoid people from seeing the offensive username.

However, hiding the log entry currently does not affect [[Special:BlockList]]. The offensive username is still visible to everyone in this special page even after hiding the block log entry.

I suggest that hiding a block log entry will also hide the relevant username from special pages such as [[Special:BlockList]] and [[Special:AutoblockList]].
