I think anyone that doesnt post within a week or 2 of joining, should be deleted. look at the member list. There are like 10 names that have no posts.

Noooo! Meh

Leave the silent ones alone. It's like being in a zombie movie. The silent masses advance upon you with glazed and bulging eyes. Shifty Shit-Eating Grin

I don't think that we should rid ourselves of the silenced ones. After all, that would mean I would've been kicked when I went to Alaska. Maybe 3 months........after that, it's no longer vacation. You've moved and forgot your computer, or you've died.

I think that if they reg and dont post for a couple weeks after regging they should be deleted. I dont think otherwise they should, unless maybe somebody doesn't post for 6 months or something like that.

perhaps they prefer to just read the topics and dont have/want to say anything. They should stay.

I dont agree. If all they want to do on such a nice forum is read, they can just be guests. I see no reason at all to reg if not going to post. So, no, I can't really agree with you wardrich.
