Well I wasn't cherry picking on the whitelist, anyone with a report on them was taken off. Some are people that have been banned or not on in a while. If you're active and people can vouch for you I'll put you back on, but I'd like to know why you have a bad rap first. Basically many griefing groups have sleeper agents that will take over when one of their other members gets banned. That's why I started pruning in the first place.
