I don't think  we need to worry about this before it happens. If someone
who expected to be elected fails to gain membership they should
certainly check their Wiki. If they find they've been "black hatted" ;)
then they can tell whoever was running the election (psa). I'm sure
he/she will do the sensible thing, and no harm will be done.

Of course if the problem were to persist then we might need to do
something about it.

A lifetime ban should do the trick.
