Yes, I think it should refer to "active Members", for the reasons you
say. If for some reason that's not legally kosher (sometimes the law
has strict rules about how Membership can remove members), then we
could make a unanimous vote of the Board be the way to remove a
member. Again, the Board would just be rubber-stamping after a
discussion -- and at least a straw poll -- among the Members.

The SFLC can tell us whether just going with "2/3 of active Members"
will suffice.

For folks who haven't read the bylaws yet: note that "active" is a
technical term, defined in III(5)(B), not some vague hand-wavy concept.
