New Poll: Clerics, Deities, and Losing Spells

The past couple posts, discussing the "policing" of clerical practices in the game, got me thinking how many DM's actually do that - monitor the behavior of the cleric, and if it doesn't adhere to the deity's tenets, they get a stern "talking to" by agents of the deity, and can even lose their high level spells.   Check out the new poll, let me know you how do it.

In the DMG on page 42, when discussing the Atonement spell, Gary suggests USING ALL CAPS IN A BOOMING VOICE TO CHASTISE A BAD CLERIC!!!  That makes me chuckle - it can be interpreted as autocratic, or totally campy.
