Something to specifically point out about that example of admin decisions lists is that there are 3 categories for an instance block (silence, suspension, block), 2 of those categories still allow instance members to follow (if they so choose) accounts on the silenced or suspended (not yet entirely blocked) instance. The "people" generally often are free to decide for themselves and "over-rule" a hasty block by an admin on a follow-by-follow basis.
