After searching the forums, I'm still unclear on a couple of things:
If the person who scouted you gets pruned or de-scouted, then you do too. How far back does this go? If there are eighteen generations of artists who got scouted back to one guy who gets pruned, do they ALL go as a matter of chain reaction? Where is the cutoff?
If multiple people scout you, but the one whose recommendation gets you in the AP gets pruned, can't the other votes spare you, essentially?
If you're bumped off, then re-scouted do all the scores start back at zero? TBH, that first rule seems kind of silly, has ever been any discussion of altering/repealing it, or is everyone else satisfied with the status quo?
