It certainly could be, but my fear is that the same logic that would be used to implement such a rule in the first place would be the same logic to implement a sliding scale.

I disagree (although strictly you are right). The fear is only just when nobody acts upon it to prevent it from becoming a sliding scale and keeping it that way if needed.

I knew I was the butt of a joke, I could just feel it. No offense taken, you have to be able to laugh at yourself. I should have known this already, and I could've easily just logged out and checked. This is a much more intriguing exchange than I had earlier; at least we are bouncing ideas back and forth, building off of something and probably both have something positive to take away.

That is what it's all about right? I don't see much wrong with administrative termination for a category of users that do not engage in similar activity but I realize that sounds really fascist too.

I just remember being on other forums where there were developers, merchants and many users that never posted publicly and remained active within PMs; everyone approaches things their own way. Although, as you pointed out earlier it might be fair to just mark those that haven't been accessed at all since their registration. For example, we could potentially still implement what you're suggesting if we count PMs as activity for this one proposal. As you said, it's at their discretion, but I think it could be done with strict limits and fair rules.

As far as I know the same posting restrictions for brand news (or any other rank) apply to pm's as well. Assuming it's true, is this forum for people who wish to send 1 pm every 360 seconds?

As long as we're counting PMs in the equation, then I can't see much harm in this (unless we're both missing something); other than the total registered users, which as Jet said might affect marketing, but I would be willing to bet this would be minimal and most likely negligible. It might be something worth doing when we migrate over to the new forum software.

Well sure, marketing and who knows what else may pose valid points I do not know, have not considered and cannot speak about. Maybe it's a dud because keeping registrations serves a purpose that outweighs the usefulness of a periodic sweep. Then again, maybe not. Much is still unclear for me.

This can result in lot of confusion. For instance, an inactive member coming after some time and wanting his account back. However, if the servers are stressed with new registrations, this might help.
