Like she said here and on PB, he's her housemate. She did not even know he was the one responsible for the un-civil post toward Mr Scott until after he had posted twice. If you read her first reply to Alphamale it's clear she disapproved of his post and was defending Mr Scott. Mr Scott mistakenly thought thought they were the same person ONLY because Alphamale repeated things Gabbi had told him in confidence. He jumped to the wrong conclusion, and so did you.
Of course they have the same IP address, they're probably using the same computer, but they're not the same person.
Not only did you block her for a false reason, but you validated the false accusation that Gabbi was posting back and forth under 2 names, then lying about it. That's just plain awful. In the context of that thread, where Gabbi was horribly insulted and had her privacy violated, yet remained at least 98% civil, it's more than awful.
Gabbi has made tremendous contribution to the babble community, with her directness, humor, support, understanding, knowledge, and quirkiness. She is much-loved, and deserves better treatment.
