It looks like there was another wave of spam posts. I remember a discussion about how to handle them in the past, but have we figured out how to weed them out?

Correct. Im banning past 48 hours and removing topics from sleepers dating all between Feb and July 2015. We should maybe make a database export and permanently delete all accounts who haven't logged in last 365 days. Interesting enough to set the voting poll ?

Can you put accounts with 0 posts not logged in for a year on "must be reappeared" state? How many accounts like that are there?

I've done quick and single search with following parameters:

Account level: Newbie
Last online: <= 2017-01-01
Posts count: 0


Total 2550 Members.

Its just one search and list is horrible. We really need to cleanup forums if we wanna proper SEO and activity on them.
