Actually, merely failed to kiss their collective ass tenderly enough.
Reminds me of the scene in Matrix Reloaded (itself a pretentious film full of pretentious characters and pretentious dialogue) where the Merovingian's jealous wife Persephone demands one sincere kiss from Neo, as her price.
"If you kiss our ass like you were kissing a true love, Gerard, we'll overlook your posturing to the effect that you're so powerful on WP that we can't do anything to you."
But Gerard refused, so they took away some of this magic. Hubris, Gerard.
I suppose if Gerard had actually given them a totally sincere ass-kiss ("Do it like you were kissing Jimbo's ass") they would have accepted it and let it go.
Maybe sent Jimbo an IRC: "We envy you."
However, as has been pointed out, Gerard retains adminship, and thus still the ability to do one of the things he's infamous for, which is overwide range blocks. And of course, he still retains his big mouth.
One suppose he's going to sulk a while now. He was told he was "in the wrong cabal"
Presumably that means: "not the one that controls ArbCom."
