If my formula had been used to determine the block length, Zenhussy would have probably gotten a 1 week block:

B = S + D*exp(-P/r) = 1 + 48*exp(-147/r) = 1.

Here I assume that S = 1, since the incivility is minor. The duration of the previous block is D = 48, and time passed since the previous block expired is P = 147. For any reasonable value of r, we get exp(-147/r) very close to 0, so the term 48*exp(-147/r) vanishes. This seems fair: considering nearly three years of civil behaviour on the part of Zenhussy, previous incivility should no longer count IMHO.
