One of the mechanisms I have always liked is that someone becomes inactive after a certain number of missed votes.

Once inactive they don't count in the quorum calculations.

And once the become active again, e.g. by voting, they are moved back to the active list and are counted in the next quorum calculation.

Now some people think that someone cannot stay on an inactive list forever.  I think that while nothing is forever, it does not really matter how long someone is on a list.  Some ALS may have joined because they are genuinely interested but they may just not have the capacity/bandwidth to participate quite yet.  So unless there is malfeasance or a resignation, I suggest you leave them on an inactive list indefinitely
