I oppose this... since becoming an admin a few months ago, my user  
page has been vandalized 98 times by those users that I have blocked  
for disruption and vandalism, or those that believed that a page  
protection or closing an AfD against their POV were admin abuse . All  
I need is 98 "against" votes on such reaffirmation.

The peer review process that can be initiated by posting a complaint  
at WP:ANI, or as a last resort presented to de ArbCom, is sufficient  
recourse for those that have a complaint against an administrator.
