I'm not much of a CB'er, and I haven't as far as I recall ever been Borg'd, nor do I have any special powers here at the monastery, but from my persepctive, your post and this thread explain and justify the reasoning for the anonimity of these powers. What else could you do with the knowledge of who borg'd you, other than barate them regarding the injustice and/or bear them a grudge for a judgement call?
If you were able to barate the wielder of those powers for using them in what, from your testimony, was a ligitimate circumstance, then that person would now be subject to your indignation and argument. That Borg'ing is only a temporary measure limited to minutes or maybe hours, and the only restriction it places on you is your ability to use the CB, then the only lasting "effect" it has upon you is to serve as a warning--hopefully anyway.
Being Borg'd is your warning, I see no reason for the issuing of a preemptive written one.
