I tend to be of the opinion that the AC should be bothered when there's
a controversial situation, or when a long-term ban is in order. I think
that, based on that post and WHEELER's past history, a 24 hour vacation
would be fine without an AC ruling. If the problem continues, then we
can burden the poor AC.

vehicle for expressing hate speech. I am against that.
Surely this is Arbitration Committee material? They take a while
(gosh darn these unpaid volunteers in a job that sucks by definition!),
but the results have been sensible so far IMO.
