Hmm...Sirens were proposed, and voted in.  The clause that allows falling Rocks to destroy Sirens was proposed, and voted in.  So if this proposal that removes that clause passes, Jonathan and I would both have gotten points for a net change of zero.

Besides, take out that one clause, and that leaves "both Big Rocks are destroyed and the location becomes vacant."  If the location is vacant, where's the Siren?  If both Big Rocks are destroyed, what's left for the Siren to sit on?
