I've already planned a "mail this user" feature; maybe the "you've
been blocked" page should have a link to mail the specific sysop
who did the block.

It's pretty easy to post to Wikipedia-L though; nothing blocks that.

That's not a bad idea either; I perfer actual email for direct
communication, but user talk pages are there, and are being used
for that  There's already a link to your user page at the top of
the page (at least in the standard skin; I don't remember about
CB); perhaps we should have a flag next to it with a link that
only appears when there have been changes to your user talk since
you last visited it.
