I'm not certain if there is any common pattern of interactions between the
Arbcoms, the Wikipedia communities, and Jimmy Wales. in any case, I think
that local issues (one local ArbCom decision) should not necessarily be
discussed at international level, unless there is a clear concrete
explanation what can be drawn from them - way too often the English
Wikipedia and its ArbCom are presented and interpreted as THE Wikipedia and
THE ArbCom.
