I see the logic of both points of view, but I'll add my two cents 
anyway. I think that Daenyth is right, but I'd also say that an account 
that was created a long time ago but has never been used could probably 
be removed. Hell, on the forums we have accounts created in 2003 with a 
0 post count... after six years of inactivity I'd say it's time to move on.
