Thanks for your input Michael,

We won't be shaming anyone, nor taking retribution. The process has an inherent
reward for good behavior: credibility. That, together with respect/fellowship is
enough to make the process self-efficient.

Also, as you say it'll be self-correcting because people will remember wrong
certifications made in bad faith in a system that's transparent and open.
