Large number of 0-post accounts
#1
Hi,

There are a large, really large number of accounts in our nice Forum that have 0 posts. This is typical of accounts created by spammers, trolls, bots etc.

To deal with this problem the Forum may activate a process that prunes accounts if there are no posts after a certain time period from the time the account registration was accepted for example 30, 60, 90 days, 1 year, etc

The feasibility of doing this is under review and based on comments and feedback received such an automated process may not be not be viable due to the presence of legitimate 0-post accounts among the thousands of bogus 0-post accounts.

Any updates will be posted to this thread.

Note that registered accounts that have not made at least one post within 30 days from the registration date will be automatically removed in an effort to combat spammers and trolls that continue to routinely register accounts in our nice Forum that remain dormant until they are eventually used to pollute the Forum.

There is new "Introduce Yourself" sub-forum in the Community section to make it easier and more convenient to make a first post :-)
