It was supposed to be a members purge In the initial post Javal stated there were some 1900 members and that 99% never posted, they signed up but never used their accounts. Except to maybe PM other members. Or they posted at one time but were either banned or stopped visiting. Or forgot passwords and screennames and had to sign up with a new account. So javal was going to purge phantom members to free up database space. Ironically I'd say about half the folks posting in the thread now posted after the deadline for the purge to begin. So I don't know if the purge began or if these are folks further down the list.
