I haven't been able to sleep yet and am not sure I'm thinking too straight at the moment, but: when the current block formula was created and implemented, wasn't it somehow partly to address objections over really long blocks; and wasn't the issue then raised (and at least put on the to-consider list) that it might thereafter not be correct to factor a long block given under the old system into a block given under the new system? That somehow those old fields needed to be leveled into more what they would have been, if played on under the new system all along..?
> I'm glad Zen's receiving support, and I'm open to suggestions, but I think the same formula should (in general) be used for everyone. If poster A's block is going to be determined in part by poster B's history, then shouldn't poster B's block also be determined in part by poster A's history? And shouldn't their reductions for "good behavior" be the same?
