For the most part we agree with this and this is how we operate, warning then suspension. (I note that you talk about "some" community, not this one.) There can be exceptions to this: One is if there is some immediate harm caused we might suspend right away. For example, if a user is vandalizing posts at a high rate we just will "pull the plug&...

Putting my Product Owner hat on for a moment then, since this is a feature request there are (the usual) things missing$^1$. Who will be enabling this test?

If they ...
