             I am agreed that ,under normal circumstances, there is no need to allow left server back to origin server . But I met some strange situation. For example ,sometimes, one server may be with two diffrent UUIDs recorded by Leader server. 
             I think if the left server could be back to origin server, it will be a easy solution to solve many strange problems.
