In an ideal world, that'd obviate the need for places like this!
To those who have expressed concerns, or may be harbouring them, check the algorithm I listed above (and, no, Al Gore did not "invent" it): the criteria are no
posts -- ever -- and not having visited
in the past year. Those are just the programmatic safeguards; the bloke who will be riding herd on the database server also has a pretty good cache of familiar names that'll be excluded from the purge (although there are but two of those).
This is not going to be the admin walking in and lobbing a nuke at the forum's user community! If anything, I have tried very hard to be as conservative as possible in the selection of the criteria for deletion.
In the sense of openness and honesty, if somebody can offer better or more rational criteria -- speak up! I'll be happy to entertain variations on the theme!
