I have configured all users with Trust Level 0 with zero posts to deactivate after 365 days. Essentially, if you don’t spend 10 minutes reading 30 posts across 5 topics within a year of registration, your account will be deactivated.
If you are 10bit / Trust Level 1 or higher, then your account will continue to remain active regardless of your activity levels.

My only agenda is to be a decent digital steward on behalf of the community. And to talk shit about @Kirk.
I thought about you and a couple other notable community members who have accounts here but don’t post often, and of the ones I could think to check he’d already set you all to 12-bit or w/e. No one’s purging you, buddy!
