Just for everyone's edification here is the relevant rule itself:
R.2.C.II.b wrote:In cases of inactivity of more than 1 calendar year the Whip or Chancellor may call for a vote to remove. The vote will be held according to the rules of a Category A vote. If the measure passes the member will be removed from the Senate but may return subject to nomination as a member of the general board.
Please note a couple things:
call for a vote" should have been everyone's first indication that this is not some sort of automatic process
2) The point about making this a Category A vote (60% supermajority required) is that it shoudl be ahrd to kick someone out even if it is for being inactive.
3) Again the person leaves if the measure passes, this makes no point in regards to HOW an indiviudal Senator shoudl decide whether to retain or dismiss an individual. That is why they are Senators so they can exercise their judgement.
4) If anyone bothers to read the last part of that rule they will note that any person removed for inactivity (and incidentally by request as well) may be re-nominated by the board at large.

"I put no stock in religion. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of god. I have seen too much religion in the eyes of too many murderers. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. "
