I do apologize for the inconvenience. As I've mentioned on here and elsewhere, we are a popular site, and get slammed with spam. I get up to 1,000 spam registrations a day, and 100 nonsense posts with obnoxious links. Although it's annoying, it keeps the forums mostly clear of noxious internet blather and spam. Going through each of these registrations on a case by case basis would obviously be overwhelming.

It's not inactivity I purge for, but for zero posts. We do require users to make a certain amount of moderated posts (i.e. must be approved) before they get full functionality. I did look into purging for inactivity about a year ago, and may have done some test pruning of really old stuff, but at this point, it's only for zero posts.

Again, sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello! Im Tom, from Central NJ! Hope to make some new acquaintances here and maybe some partners in crime to go rail-fanning! Feel free to hit me up and say hi! I'm always down for train watching trips. :)

I'm not a lurker. I'm a foamer.
