Slightly off topic here, but I think this node has gone way down hill anyways...
I was "silenced" (or /borg'd if that's what it is indeed called) for typing something like "/me trips NodeReaper". At the time I got the

NodeReaper has swallowed spartan. spartan was tasty!
I thought it was something that happened purely out of coincidence because I was messing around with NodeReaper... Now that I've figured out (through this node) that I was silenced by a person (albeit for a VERY short time), I too would like to question the anonymity of someone allowed to /borg somebody. It just doesn't seem right, as chip points out.
