The practice of blocking editors for unilaterally
the cartoon display is a violation to [[WP:NBD]], which goes on saying:
In order to reach the best possible decisions, we hold it important to
listen carefully to each other's arguments, and to try to find mutually
acceptable solutions in conflicts. Polls are the exception and not the
rule, and where they do exist they are *not binding*.
Blocking editors a minute after they removed the cartoons
without any warning won't ever make that possible.
Removing the image against consensus is not "listen[ing] carefully to
each other's arguments" or "try[ing] to find mutually acceptable
solutions". NBD does not allow you to ignore consensus and directly
says that: "That does not mean you should ignore a consensual
decision". It's just saying consensus may change over time.
Please show me the policy which states, that a change against
a 3 month old poll result should result in an immediate block.
Besides removing the image against consensus won't hinder you
to listen carefully to the other's arguments. Even a block
won't hinder you to read other people comments, but a block
definitely will hinder other people to listen to your arguments.
