How early on?
I remember blocking an ip number within the first few days. Speedy
deleted stuff, too. We did not call it speedy deletion back then, of
course, it was just deletion. As for locking pages, hmmm.... I do not
remember well. We had the ability, and we used it temporarily.
Deleting vandalism is very different from locking pages from editing.
Maybe it's inappropriate to make such strong claims about features always
being used --in an attack on someone else -- if you don't actually remember.
