This isn't quite fair, unfortunately. We've gone a long time without an 
explicit policy regarding this subject, mostly because we were all in 
agreement. You can't boot someone out because they violated a rule that 
wasn't made clear to them. OTOH, if our position is clearly stated and 
is violated then I agree - begone with them.
