My $.02 -- I like Brion's idea of a kind of intermediate deletion.
Also, I have never tried to block an IP because I'm not sure I
understand the ramifications --- how long would that last? How is it
reversed? The only cases where I could actually see myself using it
would be to stop a vandal in progress, or to slow down an overeager
newbie who hasn't bothered to read any of the guidelines and is out
there creating tons of duplicate, 'incorrectly named' pages -- it would
be good to slow them down long enough to be pointed in the right
direction for log-in instructions, sandbox practice, naming
conventions, etc. -- but without discouraging contributions. Any
answers, suggestions? -- Jules
