The reputation (XP) system here in the Monastery is mostly effective, I feel. But there seems to be a gap in the usual rule that what people do can be traced back to them: Chatterbox muting.
The other day I was using language somebody didn't like, and that somebody muted me from the CB for a while. I say "somebody" because I have no way to know who did it.
I don't mind the Powers That Be having the ability to mute people. I do mind their hiding behind a veil of anonymity.
PS: The anonymity of voting is the better-known exception to the accountability rules. But since one bozo can be outvoted by a saner majority -- and since an insane majority spells the end of the Monastery anyway -- that's not as big a problem as anonymous smiting from Olympus.
