How is it any different?
It is the EXACT same thing. The only difference would be in scale & timing.
So its perfectly fine for 1up & any other alliance to kick inactives & add in actives with better score throughout the round, but if its all done at once theres something wrong with it?
I've gotta say that's one big pile of crap.
If its wrong, its wrong. Scale & timing can't change something from being perfectly acceptable to something deplorable.

Well I actually find nothing unethical with TomKats actions, but he was aware of what our style of play would be & what my expectations were before he joined. In fact I believe TomKat quite enjoyed his stay with us & his only reason for leaving was because his top 10 score had suddenly become attractive enough to 1up for them to accept him.

Again it is completely comparable, it is the exact same thing. OK so 1up kicks inactives & adds recruits once a week or whatever it is. Instead of waiting & doing it all at once. Again the only difference would be on the matter of scale & timing.
I'm beginning to see why you're defending TomKats hypocrisy, it seems you have a case of it yourself.

I didn't at any point call TomKat names, I like TomKat, I found him to be a good guy to have around during his stay with us.
I simply pointed out the hypocrisy of something he posted.
