Blocks and keeps
My standards for blocks had been getting much harsher, especially for IP addresses. Any vandalism of a racist, sexist, or homophobic nature, or violations of WP:BLP, would, for many months, earn a block for 6 months to 1 year.
At the end of 2013, I softened up, after an off-wiki email exchange with another editor. I now will block only for 31 hours at a time. However, for extraordinary circumstances, such as vandalism after a shorter block and/or school blocks, I will still block for a full month to a full year. Too many people use the relative unreliability and the free access ("anybody can edit") to piss on us.
My block log is here: .
Please remember: no indef IP blocks; see Wikipedia:Blocking IP addresses.
Alleged consensus-violating inclusionism
Regarding the issue of my supposed consensus-violating inclusionism at RFA and AFD, I did the research to confirm or to deny it, see User_talk:Bearian#My_recent_record.2C_for_the_record. I am not much more inclusionist than the average Wikipedian. For the period May 1 to 11, 2011, I was in line with the consensus on WP:RFA exactly 100 % of the time, and on WP:AfD a bit over 92 % of the time.
