In relation to my above statement, an IP has been acting out a bit. User talk:72.39.123.186 Special:Contributions/72.39.123.186. --DKong27 Talk Cont 04:04, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

I think this is a simple misunderstanding, and the IP got a little hostile as a result of that. I've tried to explain the situation on their talk page. We'll see what happens. Robin Hoodtalk 04:13, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
Clearly this has moved beyond the level of a "simple misunderstanding". Given what's been happening on the IPs talk page, can I ask an Admin to give him a cool-off block including his talk page? So far, he's confined himself to that page, so either rpeh or I blocking him would be ineffective. Robin Hoodtalk 06:49, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
Just woke up, so I'll be watching. Regardless, is it true you guys can't use your three-hour block rights to block a user from editing his talk page? I didn't know that. --Krusty 08:35, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes, that was one of the stipulations of being a Blocker was that we wouldn't have that right, so they would always be able to appeal before a possible full block. Oh and technically we have 4 hour block rights, it's just that with 3 being in the drop-down, that's usually sufficient and easier to select. Robin Hoodtalk 08:50, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, that is ridiculous; these days where GK is busy with things much more important than this site (and I'm down with a less important cold, sleeping 12 hours a night), we need you guys to be able to do what we do. Also, I'm pretty sure nobody but you and rpeh will get Blockuser rights anytime soon, and why should one of you start abusing your blocker rights all of a sudden? If nobody objects, I'll contact Daveh so you can block users from editing their talk pages. --Krusty 09:03, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm fine with it either way. I mean, it's nice to be able to give a full cool-down when needed, but at the same time, there's only so much harm a user can do (besides a little cluttering of RC) when limited to their own talk page. Robin Hoodtalk 09:50, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
E-mail to Daveh sent. It might be a minor thing, but it doesn't make sense to give editors a 4-hour "cool-down"-block and at the same time invite them to freak out on their talk page. :) --Krusty 10:00, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
