There are 6769 users registered on this forum right now, but only 2710 made at least 1 post.
Seriusly, why the most part of the registered users have subscribed for nothing?
I bet that some of them have created an account years ago and never used it again.

I kown that you will think "Why do you care?". The answer is simple, i don't know

Maybe they thought you had to make an account to read the forum?

Or that they're spammers, only for some of them to remain dormant either due to anti-spam measures or whatever reason. Or perhaps they don't directly spam through posts but in their signature.

Nah. What if the user comes back, just to discover their account was deleted?

An account standby option would be better. Accounts that have been inactive for a certain amount of time (say, 1-3 months) wouldn't count towards the total number of users, although the accounts would still exist.

Yeah, now that is a better option.
