According to Martin, they will be contacted, and if they replied, they wouldn't be purged, but if they don't, they would be, as per the rules.
For this reason, I don't think it's in our best interest to go after inactives, again. I personally don't think it isn't a good reason day 1 either, because good or bad, if they don't make an appearance, they're gone. I only voted for CP to save my hide.
As such, I disagree with lynching Abys. We can't lynch somebody, for the 3rd time for the same reason of inactivity.
But I would really, really, like to hear from Abys and this mysterious action, before we kill the guy. He is literally the first interesting plot-twisty thing that's happened so far, and were going to kill him.

@abystander2, you claim to take a stand,
Come and take it!"
Also, if his vote was nullified, would he be notified?
Actually, provocation is good. So far, Kreydis is one of the only ones going out of his way to do so.
Currently there are 4 votes on Abys, and 2 on Kreydis. The reason for Kreydis: role play. The reason for Abys: inactivity, which will kill him anyways.
However, I've just seen the above picture from Enginish, our unofficial forum spy. There is no possible way Abys could have been here, and not seen all the pings at least yesterday. Since it is five hours, he's missed most of today. But still, it is indeed suspicious.
Initiating ping protocol:
I am currently considering my vote.
