In order for both the project and third-party stats sites to present better quality statistics, I'd like to suggest that an annual database purge be implemented.
It could include:

1. Automatic deletion of all hosts which have been inactive for xx months.
2. Automatic deletion of user accounts which have accrued zero total credit.

#1. I have a computer that has been busy with a CPDN task for 8 months now. It is just about to get back to other work. How do you determine X such that you don't actually cut off computers that were busy with something else for a while?

#2. We still have people activating their old S@H Classic accounts. Deleting these is NOT a good idea.
