The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. Proverbs 9:10 (ESV)
Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil. 1 Peter 3:13-17 (ESV)
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. Romans 1:20 (ESV)
I find blocking distasteful, so if I issue a block it will not be frivolous.
I will only block if counsel and warnings prove ineffective, and probably initially only for short terms. I have been blocked elsewhere without warning or good reason, and I know the frustration this causes. If I do issue a block I will give a true reason, and I plan to give a fuller explanation on the blocked user's talk page. I am happy for others to hold me to that.
The obvious exception is blocking for clear vandalism, for which there will be no warning. Please remember that all Members are authorized to block clear vandals. I will generally give a shorter "vandal block" to an establish editor than to a "drive by" vandal. This is because I realise that sometimes such things are "escalated into" and not arising from the common-or-garden vandalism urge.
