When you block a user it asks how long the ban should stay in place.
Kaf got to him (I'm bigotedly guessing the gender) first and gave him
48 hours, I think. Not knowing he was already banned, I gave him 72.
Too bad it's not additive :)
The default is 24 hours. You can change both the number and the units,
but I don't know how big the number can be or what the allowed units
are (days, minutes, millennia...?).
By the way, is there a way to purge individual revisions from the
history of an article? There's still a few 'dirty words' hanging about
there (though not in any article's current revision thanks to James'
