I have been slowly collecting gold-badge super-powers in a few categories. I am not comfortable with them. I like to be able to vote on a post, and make the community aware of it and either agree or disagree. I do not like to veto posts single-handedly. I wouldn't trust me with this authority. I don't like having to check tags thoroughly before suggesting a duplicate because I might instead be decreeing a duplicate by mistake. It has happened before, and will happen again.
Can I give them up in some convenient way, and go back to being a normal, voting plebian?
I have seen a few posts here asking whether specific random coincidences of voting and retagging can make people lose, or avoid gaining these privileges. But I'm not asking if I may lose them due to some specific happenstance. I'm asking whether I can actively, voluntarily give them up.
