I think everyone here has free reign to make a mistake now and then.   
We're only human.  It's only repeated mistakes that threaten to  
change our community standards.  If the list were full of name- 
calling, for example, people would start to think name-calling were  
acceptable in this community.  So in those cases, we have to take  
some action if we want to maintain our community standards.  In my  
opinion, those tasked with this job do have an increased  
responsibility to adhere to those standards (e.g. "be nice").  But  
we're still only human, so we're still permitted the occasional  
mistake, just like everyone else.
