If we can go out with these blocks this week or early next at the latest, we won't need to delay until after release of FF21.

Jorge - do you think this deserves a blog post? Or should we wait until we finalize the criteria for blocking old versions of Flash?

I think it's worthwhile to announce this block along with whatever updated blocking policy we have, so that more people are aware of why and when we do things.

Unfortunately I won't be able to test this today since this won't show up for an hour due to server caching. Setting Paul as QA Contact to test this overnight.
