I've put a suggestion on WP:AN for a process to quickly confirm community bans and allow for review.  I agree with Prasad that this sort of thing needs to be done on Wikipedia itself.  We need a rapid, open and fair method for ensuring that community bans have genuine community support, and it seems to me we don't really have that at the moment.  Once an admin's decided on a community ban, the only way that can currently be overruled is an appeal to the arbitration committee, or the start of a wheel war.
