Month-long summer vacation is, or at least used to be, common in Europe.
And what of situations that are even a bit unusual, like someone getting
hurt and being in hospital for a month or two?

I don't have much of a problem with a short fuse on an easily reversible
action, like disabling your Fedora password and requiring you to reset
it.  Blocking email or removing web content should only be done after a
significant period of time --- multiple months --- has elapsed without
signs of life.
