That said, I agree with the decision to block Tom Moore but respectfully disagree with the decision to block Phil Scheur, based on my review of their edits.
Tom Moore has already been blocked three times by Ed Poor, and Tom Moore has added nothing to our project.? I question whether that common name is even his real one.? His response to valid criticisms have been worse than Ames' replies.? As Dean says, a two-week block at this point was lenient.
Phil Scheur, who probably is using his real name, has some stellar edits to entries such as Christopher Columbus, Rick Santorum and Barack Obama.? Phil Scheur's edits to Sesame Street may seem a bit out of line, but that is a show that has long pushed unusual multiculturalism on kids.? That's not a big deal to most people, but it shouldn't be shocking to recognize it either.? At any rate, one or two questionable edits amid many good ones seem forgivable.
That's my two cents.
