Enwiki users are now trying to change policy so users with non-Latin
usernames that don't provide transliterations in their signatures when
they're told to can be blocked. Currently, the policy requests that users
consider providing a transliteration, but does not require it. This came as
a result of massive amounts of discussion that ended up in this change from
blocking all non-Latin usernames. Now enwiki contributors are trying to move
back towards blocking good faith contributors with non-Latin usernames,
which will very likely create problems once Single User Login comes into
effect. Will we block people who are honestly trying to improve the
encyclopedia just because they haven't changed their signature to a Latin
