trivial of guidelines when it suits them. This is very one-sided.
"accountability and responsibility" does not mean answering whatever
questions anyone wants to ask them. If you have a problem with an
admin, you can always go to ArbCom - it is through ArbCom that admins
are held accountable.
I doubt any admin would block someone for not answering a question.
More likely, they would decide that someone has done something worthy
of being blocked, but ask them for an explanation to give them a
chance to get out of it. You are being blocked for the original
offence, not for failing to answer the question. The same applies to
admins during ArbCom cases - if there is a clear case against them,
and they don't respond to the case, they can expect to be desysopped.
They have the option of responding to the case and possible explaining
their way out of it.
Sorry, not in my experience with an Admin who had ignored ALL of my requests.
After I went to ArbCom it was refused, partly because it was thought
to be a similar case to my previous ArbCom (it wasn't), and partly
because I received my 12 month ban... which I can't check because
people won't give examples of where I've supposed to be bad.
