Furthermore, if we are going to use voting as the litmus test, then I
would argue we would have to institute that policy "as of now" meaning
past non-votes don't count. It wouldn't be fair to "penalize" someone
for an action that wasn't considered a penalty before now. If that's
the case, then we can't inactivate someone until 2 elections from now.

I'd agree with that, but also that the voting process then *must* include
an option to explicitly decline to vote. Otherwise, you're forcing
people to vote in order to maintain their membership - even if there's
nobody/nothing on the ballot that they could, in good conscience, vote
for.

Yes, it all has to be part of this "reboot." But the main gist of what
I'm pointing out is that if we are going this route, our delay is going
to be about 2 years from now before we start inactivating anyone and I
think that kind of defies the whole intent in the first place.
