|Note to admins reviewing any of my admin actions (expand to read).|
I am often busy in that "real life" of which you may have read.
Blocks are the most serious things we can do: they prevent users from interacting with Wikipedia. Block reviews are urgent. Unless I say otherwise in the block message on the user's talk page, I am happy for any uninvolved admin to unblock a user I have blocked, provided that there is good evidence that the problem that caused the block will not be repeated. All I ask is that you leave a courtesy note here and/or on WP:ANI, and that you are open to re-blocking if I believe the problem is not resolved - in other words, you can undo the block, but if I strongly feel that the issue is still live, you re-block and we take it to the admin boards. The same applies in spades to blocks with talk page access revoked. You are free to restore talk page access of a user for whom I have revoked it, unless it's been imposed or restored following debate on the admin boards.
User:DGG also has my permission to undelete or unprotect any article I have deleted and/or salted, with the same request to leave a courtesy note, and I'll rarely complain if any uninvolved admin does this either, but there's usually much less urgency about an undeletion so I would prefer to discuss it first - or ask DGG, two heads are always better than one. I may well add others in time, DGG is just one person with whom I frequently interact whose judgment I trust implicitly.
The usual definition of uninvolved applies: you're not currently in an argument with me, you're not part of the original dispute or an editor of the affected article... you know. Apply WP:CLUE. Guy (Help!) 20:55, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Simpler answer to your request
Re your request for a one-sentence summary for Ernst, please see Talk:Acupuncture#Arbitrary_break_for_more_input, right above the compressed text. That, for sure, will be the easiest way for you to understand and present it to Ernst. (Which I'm glad you're doing -- I take it you've emailed with him before?) .... Sorry it took this long for me to find a good, concise way to say it! --Middle 8 (POV-pushing • COI) 05:39, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
- Not a semantic game my friend. Just a misunderstanding as to what exactly the question is (because I asked it WAY too verbosely, no thanks to wikistress). I know exactly what Ernst thinks about the big picture (see also my comment just above that one). Happy editing... --Middle 8 (contribs • COI) 09:38, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
