Reason 1: "Provocative list" - This seems like the one valid reason for a block, but this interprets the issue as one of a direct personal attack against individuals, which is unclear, as others have mentioned. Even if it were, such attacks are outside of Wikipedia, and therefore cant be dealt with through our formal process. Does Slim feel she is in a position to impose informal process?

I don't see any reason why personal attacks of this sort can't be dealt with through our formal process in Wikipedia, no matter where they take place.

Reason 4: "Block was inline with IAR (ignore all rules)" - IAR trumps real policy?

It can. Making racist attacks on Wikipedians on a hate site may not be against any existing rule on Wikipedia. But this is why we have a fair amount of policy ambiguity, to allow people with community respect to take sensible actions (and be prepared to defend those actions, of course).
