That would mean that if somebody _has_ done something that merits
expulsion (knowingly uploading packages with trojaned backdoors in
them is the clearest example that comes to mind) can avoid being
expelled simply by bribing someone to start campaigning loudly and
publicly for his expulsion.

Henning Makholm          "Jeg har tydeligt gjort opmærksom på, at man ved at
                   følge den vej kun bliver gennemsnitligt ca. 48 år gammel,
               og at man sætter sin sociale situation ganske overstyr og, så
           vidt jeg kan overskue, dør i dybeste ulykkelighed og elendighed."
