Slightly off topic here, but I think this node has gone way down hill anyways...
I was "silenced" (or /borg'd if that's what it is indeed called) for typing something like "/me trips NodeReaper". At the time I got the
NodeReaper has swallowed spartan. spartan was tasty!
I thought it was something that happened purely out of coincidence because I was messing around with NodeReaper... Now that I've figured out (through this node) that I was silenced by a person (albeit for a VERY short time), I too would like to question the anonymity of someone allowed to /borg somebody. It just doesn't seem right, as chip points out.

Very funny Scotty... Now PLEASE beam down my PANTS!

    I'd hate for this non-censoring form of borging to change its flavor. Its a permajoke as is and it loses what bit of humor it has by injecting all the anonymising stripping features. Borging of short periods shouldn't be decloaked. Say... a second?

    Humpf ... would anyone care to explain that does the "trip" mean in that sentence?

    Update: Would anyone care to explain why /s?he/ downvoted a genuine question from a non-native english speaker?

      In that sentence, "trip" means "to cause to stumble or fall".
