We had a new wizard (Muz) who had been caught helping players cheat and was on parole. He met a wizard on another mud that was a player on GumbiMud, and offered to exchange cheats.
The wizard on the other mud was a friend of mine.
So my friend let me use his wizard to have an incrimination conversation with Muz, which I then used to remove his wizhood from GumbiMud. He asked me how I knew, and I told him I had broken into the other mud and logged all the conversations, and saw this. He believed me.
Since security on LPMuds was so thin at the time, I felt that fear was a good security model. :)
Here's some of the conversation with Muz on the other mud as my friend's wizard character:
> goto muz /w/lexios/Rooms/cavern/dankhole8 The cavern of blood (s). Corpse of King. Muz the daring warrior. Muz smiles happily. Muz says: how are ya??? You say: i was on gumbi Muz says: and??
