in reply to Reputation and Accountability

A thing which seems to have gotten lost in this long discussion is: Does there indeed exist an audit trail?

Can the Gods check later who borge'd whom?

If not there is no use to appeal to the Gods anyhow for a wrongful action and then I tend to agree with Chip that such actions should not be conducted under the veil of anonimity.

However, if there is an audit trail -al be it not available to us mere mortal monks- then I can live with the present situation.

Perhaps one of the Gods can enlighten us? Please?

    I addressed this in my original reply. I knew most of an audit trail was already in place. Since then I've found (thanks to theorbtwo) that a full audit trail has always been in place.

    So, yes, it is not that much work to come up with a complete list of who borg'd who and when for the last several months (depending on log rotation, which depends on number of server errors, etc.).

    One item missing from the audit iswas the duration of the borging, so I'll added that. And, of course, the entire context of the conversation is not recorded in the log. Public chatter is retained (though only available to the gods) for about 1 day and backups mean that (with some work) public chatter for about a week is usually available (not counting the numerous private archives of public chatter).
