How the kicking process works
The liberation software does the following:

Staking Facilities (GoS-Moniker: SF) is 100% supporting this PR!
We can also confirm several observations were made on-chain regarding cartel members. Eg. at one point their autodelegation-software had a bug which caused all cartel members to fail certain delegation tx's, which suggests that they all use the same software.
Let's protect the Cosmos Network!
I have been working on some analysis on GOS3 - and come to the same conclusion, via an entirely different method.
tl;dr: Identified 71 monikers (+2 false positives) that overlap with Certus One’s list of potential cartel members based on independent analysis.

We also supports this PR, and agree with the data points shown above. We -will not- be going live with GoS4 with the cartel present. As a company, while we appreciate the "fun" and "excitement" that has surrounded the possibilities of the Cartel performing a censorship attack, at this point we have to take a step back and look at the optics of this scenario.
Continuing in this way from our perspective will not only potentially damage the Cosmos Network reputation and feed the anti-PoS crowd a bunch of ammo, but would also unfairly affect GoS participatory reward compensation.
Long live the Cosmos Network!

Reproduced the proposed genesis file using the tools from above. Can confirm.
