P.S. I will admit that upon reading this initialy I was dumb founded and felt stripped of my previous regal, but now i realize I didn't loose saint hood, i was never realy a saint before. After all a Saint can't stop being a Saint if he was realy Saint now can he? ;)
I thought Saint Christopher was declared
a legend and not really a Saint.
After a little research on it,
he seems to have lost some status but retained his title,
but others did not.
So there is precedent for losing saint-hood if someone cannot be proved more than a legend.
This is probably not an issue with perlmonks,
as contributors are real people and not legends
(though some have legendary reputations).
However, if there are bots acting at perlmonks and gaining XP, this issue might have to be reconsidered ...
