Fram en.wp office yearlock block

George William Herbert
In case you're not following on-wiki - Office S&T blocked English Wikipedia
user / administrator Fram for a year and desysopped, for unspecified
reasons in the Office purview.  There was a brief statement here from
Office regarding it which gave no details other than that normal policy and
procedures for Office actions were followed, which under normal
circumstances preclude public comments.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bureaucrats%27_noticeboard#User:Fram_banned_for_1_year_by_WMF_office

Several people on Arbcom and board have commented they're making private
inquiries under normal reporting and communication channels, due to the
oddity and essentially uniqueness of the action.

There was an initial surge of dismay which has mellowed IMHO into "Ok,
responsible people following up".

I understand the sensitivity of some of the topics under Office actions,
having done OTRS and other various had-to-stay-private stuff myself at
times in the past.  A high profile investigation target is most unusual but
not unheard of.

I did send email to Fram earlier today asking if they had any public
comment, no reply as yet.

Old-style drama around a high-profile admin. A decade ago we used to assume those things went together.

I forwarded this to Wikimedia-l since this list is mostly dead.

Through various means I'm aware of the partial or full circumstances
of a number of office bans.  In all cases, T&S investigated thoroughly
and acted appropriately.   I don't know why this case would be any
different, or warrants pitchforks and torches from vocal members of
the community, but these are the same community members who break them
out at every opportunity in any case.
