    Send mass-email to all of about 12,000 accounts that haven't logged in in over 2 years. If they don't click the link in their email within 90 days their account will be lost. This will lighten the server load and increase available storage. (important?)

    My server can only send a maximum of 400 emails per 12 hours... not to mention a lot of the accounts probably have invalid emails haha

    It may take a while

    I guess you don't understand how many iconic members from Buzz past we would lose if we did that.
    Not a good idea IMO.

    Is the server actually in need of lessoning the load that badly? If so I think removing those inactive accounts is better than removing super old inactive threads but only if it's reeeaaally needed.

    I remember for ages I'd go through the birthday list each day and would delete all the accounts that didn't make a single post on the site, didn't have an avatar, and didn't have any activity past the day they first created the account. Probably deleted 2,000 or so tbh.
