Amusing, but...

I hardly equate revoking ones CB privaleges* with revoking someones right* to life.

* Please mark the contrast between a privalege and a right.

PerlMonks, and by implication the CB, is a privately owned site which its owner(s), be that vroom, YAS, or whomever, grant us the privaledge to use. This, like all privaleges, should not be abused. What constitutes abuse is within the grace of the owners, just as granting us the privalege of use is.

By the same token, the owners bestow the responsibility and powers of sanction upon the gods and others, that they may use their judgement in applying those sanctions in an equitable manner so that the site may remain the haven of polite, if not democratic, debate that is so rare elsewhere on the web.

You can argue with the owners of the site that this perogative should be more open or democratic, but you cannot insist that they accept your argument. Personally, I am happy with things as they are--others seem less so--so I'll shut up now:)
