Currently we block IPs for 24 hours. This renders us
predictable. A deliberate vandal can smack us at 6pm
Thursday, get banned, and come back at 6:01 Friday
knowing that she can pick up where she left off.
Thus, change the IP block to work for a random period
between 12 and 36 hours. This will increase annoyance
to vandals whilst being no more inconvenient to innocent
folks caught in the crossfire.
