A block vote is not a decree. I think it is an expression. Blocks should be an invitation to more discussion. Let people talk and decide what is really going on with a block as a block comes up. If people want to ignore a block, I guess they can. :)

We agree that a block is not considered a veto. Closed 7:45am - Sunday 16 Sep 2012
This proposal is just to give air to some things people said in the previous proposal. Let's just be explicit about it?
How about this:
In our community, when a block is used it is not considered a veto. Anyone should feel free to use a block, but also prepared to explain oneself for making one.
Making blocks solely to thwart discussion from moving forward is not appreciated, so please be judicious if you decide to use a block.
Blocks are intended to encourage further discussion, to spend more time examining arguments, or to invite persuasion.

This makes things more workable. A block as a red flag that should be addressed, but not totally stop a proposal.
