And how exactly am I to know which power user to complain about when I petition the gods? I cannot. Thus my petition is of no practical value. Anonymity undercuts reputation systems.

    You don't need to know who did it. Remember, it's not your place to deal with the offender. Just give the gods all of the details. You could list the members of Power Users who were visible, the time it occurred, the length of time that you were borged and possibly a transcript of the conversation.

    They should be able to check the logs to find out who is responsible so that it can be dealt with privately.

      This isn't a court, this is a society. I'm not looking for punishment, I'm looking for accountability. Knowing who is reponsible for what is a part of what makes societies work.

      PS: "Not my place"? How patronizing.

        I do not think that my reply was condescending but you are free to think what you like.

        You said: "Knowing who is reponsible for what is a part of what makes societies work."

        Perhaps another visit to the What are PerlMonks Orders? would enlighten you. You see, it explains "who is reponsible for what". For example, the gods are responsible for creating and enforcing site policies. They keep our society working.
