While the Arbitration Committee have been quiet lately and no new cases have been open so far for 2016, we can at least report on decisions made by the committee recently. On 19 March, the committee amended the Palestine–Israel articles 3 case as follows:
Remedy 2 (General Prohibition) is replaced with, "All IP editors, accounts with fewer than 500 edits, and accounts with less than 30 days tenure are prohibited from editing any page that could be reasonably construed as being related to the Arab–Israeli conflict. This prohibition may be enforced by reverts, page protections, blocks, the use of pending changes, and appropriate edit filters."
The 500/30 protection sanction has been seen as a controversial form of protection, first being implemented in the GamerGate controversy article. As there has been a slump in activity for the Arbitration Committee, I think that it's best to ask the readers of the report on their take on this sanction: what do you think of the 500/30 protection sanction?
