Hi, Luke, IPs should almost never (some say never) be indefinitely blocked. Some argue that open proxies should be but there's really no basis in policy for that view. In any event, you indefinitely blocked a dynamic IP (Bbb23 (talk) 16:20, 9 March 2014 (UTC)) for a legal threat. I think you should reduce the duration to a month or shorter. If it were a static IP, I'd say you could go longer, but blocking a dynamic IP (unless, as a CU, you have information about this IP I don't) generally is an exercise in futility and it prevents other legitimate users from editing with that address.--
- I've changed it to one month. Thanks for the reminder; I was misreading Wikipedia:Blocking_IP_addresses#Indefinite_blocks as the opposite of what it actually said. LFaraone 19:22, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

An Arbitration Clarification request motion passed. You contributed to the discussion (or are on the committee or a clerk)
The motion reads as follows:
- By way of clarification, the formal warning issued by Kevin Gorman was out of process and therefore has no effect. The provisions of WP:BLPBAN will be reviewed by the Arbitration Committee and where necessary updated.
