Once you're blocked, you're blocked from everything

Well, considering the recent... contributions... of lichesarecool and his many accounts, (WHY does he hate me so much to attack my page 50000 times, and even send me a death-threat?)... anyways, I think it would be appropriate for a blocked user to not have the right to edit their talk page. I mean, they were BLOCKED despite being warned to stop, so why would they have anything useful to say? They would just continue to vandilise their talk page (as seen on many occasions), why don't admins just protect the user:talk pages from the blocked user before they have a chance to casue havok?--Arch-Mage MattTalk 20:54, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

For the sole reason to argue the block just in case.--Corevette789 20:57, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict) It is their right to appeal the block. So, no, I don't think this will happen. –Elliot 20:58, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
(various E/Cs) User talks pages shouldn't be protected as every user has the right to appeal the block on their talk page. At this stage however, it appears Lichesarecool has no intention of doing so; therefore a talk page block extension is warranted. --SerCenKing Talk 20:58, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
(Corevette) But the blocked users are not blocked for 'typos' and 'false info' they're blocked for ecsessive vandilism, (others) and if they want to protest they can protest to a warning. If they only want to protest to a block, thats their choice--Arch-Mage MattTalk 21:01, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Read the blocking policy: "The user talk page is made available for edits so that the editor (or any user of that IP address) can ask for clarification about why the block was implemented, or can appeal the block. Administrators (or other editors) will respond to any reasonable questions that are posted on a blocked user's talk page. However, all editors are advised to simply ignore any comments posted by a blocked user that are likely intended to bait a discussion; i.e., 'Do not feed the trolls'.Elliot 21:03, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
(Arch-Mage Matt) What happens if someone gets blocked unfairly (either as in they shouldn't have been blocked in the first place, or they were blocked for too long) shouldn't they have the right to protest that ?--TheAlbinoOrc 21:49, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. It's best not to become overly aggressive or zealous when dealing with blocked users. For example, I was unjustly banned from editing Conservapedia, and they blocked me in such a way that I can't edit my talk page, so I can't appeal the block. --Michaeldsuarez (Talk) (Deeds) 03:07, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
