Personally, I would much rather just let the listmasters decide how to
handle it.  I certainly don't think a blanket requirement for a warning is
necessary, and would much rather let someone make a judgement call.  The
person who started posting physical threats in response to the recent TC
decision, and who had never participated in the project previously, didn't
need a warning.

The level of process should be proportional to the level of injury that
could be caused by the action.  We're talking about an action (temporary
bans) that is considerably milder than a traffic ticket.  We should pick a
corresponding level of process.
