[WikiEN-l] Semi-Protecting User Talk Pages

I've just gone and removed semi-protections from about a dozen user  
talk pages. All of them were targets of vandalism in the past,  
generally due to their own anti-vandalism efforts. The pages included  
pages of administrators.

For obvious reasons, anyone who is warning and blocking new users in  
turn needs to be able to be contacted by these users with questions,  
concerns, etc. Semi-protection must not be used in this fashion, and  
I've removed the line supporting it from the semi-protection policy.
