Now in fairness, most of these were just low level vandals and trolls. Very few rose to the level of requiring T&S action. It's just T&S doing something to make them look relevent.


Also, those were not "important" editors with the right social and political connections with the WP community. No one's going to go to bat for them and risk banning.

Exactly, the T&S section can ban a few people, for some smaller communities and with no arbcom to use as a quick "win" to show they have value. This will, IMO, get more aggressive. They'll continue to do this and grow the list and eventually assert themselves back on the ENWP community once they have reestablished themselves and their authority.
