Well, I was here about a year ago with a story how I was blocked in
Russian Wikiversity for 6 months with zero edit count just before its
founder did not like that in a blog, I called him a dilettant, and he
decided it is a grave offence. (Thanks to the intervention by Milos, at
that point the block was lifted, and now I do not have an account over
there, and he can not block me again - the guy is still an admin over
there, in a community of 5 votes). Two more such Russian Wikiversities, and
I can suddenly find myself globally blocked. To me, it does not make sense.
