Due to lack of time, I did not follow the whole discussion, so please
excuse me for potentially addressing things that are resolved already.

Using common sense, the bylaws are pretty clear. It makes no sense to
count TU voting as an "action that required TU privileges". Otherwise,
the statement after the "OR" would imply the statements before the "OR",
making the extra part "who has not voted in a consecutive series of
voting periods [...]" superfluous.

That said, I would appreciate any efforts to improve the wording, just
to avoid future confusion and discussion.

Best regards,
