(S)omeone blocks (Y)ou.

If you are logged in as Y and go to http://twitter.com/S, you get no
indication that you are blocked, being able to view S's timeline, etc.

When accessing S's timeline using /statuses/user_timeline/S.xml
authenticated as Y, however, you get a 401/Not Authorized.

A) Besides 401 having overloaded meanings (wrong credentials. it can
also mean S has been deleted [1]), so we can't tell what is wrong,
B) It is also inconsistent. Should Y be allowed to view S's timeline
(web) or not (API)?
