I don't see inactive as being negative, just merely a state.  And because we
have an "active" state, it makes sense to have an "inactive" state.

Although I don't understand Inactive (past) members; I interpret inactive as
current members, but not active.  So inactive but past, makes no sense to

I interpret past or previous members, as not currently members.

All that said, if we really mean people that are no longer members, then
"previous members" seems reasonable.

Hi all,

I noticed recently that on the kepler webpage there is now
a section called "Inactive (past) members".

I think a better way to phrase this, which is not so negative,
would be "Previous members".  Anyone mind if I change this
