> > How about if I reduce his block from 6 to 4 weeks?

I oppose ANY block at all.

Consider the following (please note that since someone was given a "please be supportive" for using the word def*nestration that I am completely opposed to this practice for uncivil students, posters or others however if I have inadvertently offended you I am due to be blocked for 48 weeks unless you believe the remarks were directed toward a particular group or individuals say the class of people who might be tossed through windows or students or people in Georgia or..... the choice is limited only by your own imagination :-) in which case I would be given 52 weeks under the current cap of 1 year). I would oppose tossing uncivil students out of windows-the question of how long they were tossed out would be irrelevant.

News of the W*ird

D**b teachers: Veteran schoolteacher Carrie Peoples, 63, quit her job in April in Covington, Ga., after an incident in which she responded to a trash-talking 14-year-old student by ordering two male classmates to toss the girl out of an open window (even though it was a first-floor window); the boys dutifully complied, for fear of punishment

I am afraid you may be trying to make us your accomplices in this act of yours by presenting it as a concession to Larry which rather blurs the issue. If you want to change it to 4 weeks and Larry wants to come back early that's fine but why ask for our blessing? I don't think he should be blocked for four weeks or any weeks at all.

The policy is wrong and needs to be changed.

I don't think popularity should become an issue in these blocks. I would not like to see only people who are able to generate a public show of support be given favorable treatment. I think the minority should feel equally welcome posting here which is a problem I see with you granting reprieves only after asking for public opinions.
