I would like to emphasize that that's the *second* action.  The
article on dispute resolution in the SCA (now Appendix A of the
Governing Documents at <http://sca.org/docs/govdocs.pdf>) points out
that, as the original questioner wrote, if you have a problem with
person X's action, your first action is to approach person X directly
and try to work it out.  The article has a lot of helpful advice, and
I suggest that if it happens, you get and read it.
