I agree it should be a solution of last resort....  for simple reasons of
scalability want as mucha s possible to be handled by the players themselves.

I believe however that there are times however when a sysop's hand is the
most appropriate solution.  Particualrly those cases where you suspect the
offender is offending just to get attention.  In game response in these
cases only feeds the problem.  Trolls exist...
