Because there was only one way of blocking when the policy was created.

I don't think we have a rule 'assume good faith' on nl:. Apart from that, I
cannot answer questions about the opinions of people I don't agree with...

Do I agree with this? No. But I'm not a sysop, so my voice don't count. And

I guess that relationships are too much damaged on nl: to make that a valid
option. There's quite a few people who feel it's "us vs. them", with them
being the sysops. Or at least are of the opinion that the sysops have too
much power.
