I agree with Fred.  The last thing we should do it is to deter admins from 
getting involved with most contentious issues, where some sort of tarnishing 
incident is most likely to happen.

As with the Rajput case, the ArbCom has to note when an admin gets it wrong. 
That's not the same as saying we have to impose sanctions.  That's very much 
linked to the circumstances, and the way admin powers are being applied.
