The monk silenced you must have been on the Power Users list. Generally, these people are are there because they are trusted not to abuse this authority. To date, I believe I've only used this ability twice. Both times I gave warning to the offending party that I was going to silence them if they didn't watch their language. Personally, I am very tolerant of offensive language. I have only stepped in when profanity starts getting directed at another user in anger.

    If only the monk who slienced me had given me warning of imminent silencing, I wouldn't be here complaining. So apparently one of the Power Users is abusing his power. Which one? Gee, I don't know. That's my point.

    update: I use 'warning' as an example of something that would reveal the identity of the /borg-er. I don't think a warning of a temporary mute is important.
