I won't miss posters with zero numbers of posts. Or with 10 posts and the last one more than a year ago. But I doubt it were 18 months since popo's last post. Unfortunately we can't look that up because:

Actually we (no, your forum, Klaus and Markus as hosts) have 234 members of who 251 have been "Most online" - very interesting. How come that more people have been "most online" than members are around?
Of us still remaining members, all lost there "reputation" marks when the forum moved to this so far more ugly form, don't know about last time the forum moved to the former, less ugly appearance. Deleting dead memberships has nothing to do with fairness. If someone moved on for reasons, then it is like leaving a house. If I don't tell anybody and just leave, I can't expect my key will still fit when returning a year later. It's no big deal to register. But off it makes it easier for Klaus to delete spammers quickly, that's alright to melt down the numbers and keep the few who are contributing regularly. It's better than to force (or try to) members to go into FaceBook or whatever "social crap" could replace a forum.
And if someone stopped posting because he was not feeling at home anymore, he has my fullest understanding. I see myself also reducing my activities here, like others. I can't tell if it's more being tired of the time consuming internet activity in general or no more feeling at home. One part for sure is nearly no pictures -and the few have to be "downloaded", yuk. Imagine reading a newspaper and you first need to download the pictures or movies, that newspaper could as well close his online appearance.
just speaking of spammers: There's not even a filter for Kanji or Kangi characters? Restricted usability and open doors for spammers: Don't ask further why people stay away!
