Personally, I think the new rule is great (and this is someone who is not a
member).  I'm also just fine with there being a sort of "junior member"
state that is enough to be allowed in after hours, which should be easier
to achieve and does NOT have the right to block.  The ability to block is
an incredibly powerful one, and it only takes two jerkoffs with Membership
to cause havoc and defend each other from attempts to remove them.  We need
to be careful about handing that out; we've had issues with people who
don't really understand consensus blocking things in a way that is highly
detrimental to the community.  I like there being three levels: visitors,
who need someone to accompany them, members, who can visit without a
chaperone, and Members, who can block and who pay (because paying gives us
a way of getting rid of them if they're ever late on their dues).
