in reply to How should Perlmonks deal with Plagiarism?
It seems to me that the proper response is to:
- Remove the offending material from the nodes.
- Remove all XP gained from the posts from the posters.
- Revoke node approval priveleges for a period of time (if removing the XP does not do so).
I don't see the point of a suspension or ban; it's really not worth the effort to devise a system that ties accounts to user identities so strongly that someone cannot sign up again for a new account and start over.
