Argh me matee! Line 'em up and make them walk de plank Mr. Christian! Send them to their watery grave! Argh!
All kidding aside, I ran many forums over the years and its just the way it is. Some just lurk, others might be spam accounts, some bashful, some not smart enough to remember their passwords or realize they can get them easily. Get an account because they want to look at pictures which some forums don't let you unless logged in, etc.
Most forum software I ran has a maintenance/purge system.
I'd set parameters that would look at members that use to post but no longer do. Weigh it against one time log ons then no more for 6 months to a year, sort them and if there were to many, flush them. Then rebuild indexes and purge blank space to speed up the software and keep it running smooth. Update any mods and vila, good to go.....
