I could go along with the first part - purging un-used accounts.

But I don't like the second part where active users that have left get 'unpersoned', to use a George Orwell-ish term.

My best example of this is tilly, a fantastic contributor who has been forced by his employer to stop visiting the Monastery. (Professional Employees and Works for Hire) If tilly - or anyone - decides to return after a long absence, he should not have to start over as an initiate - his old posts should continue to bear his name.

    Well, as long as we go with the "No Write Up" part (and a looong time of not logging in), it should be fine. Even paco would get to stay then. :)

    I don't think any user with writeups should be deleted, even if it wouldn't cause havoc in the database.
