I've doing some investigations and the forum has over 800 registered users who have never posted.

This seems a very high number, as the forum is totally open to browse and there is no need to register.

I don't know if this is an abnormally high value.

I know that we have around 200 active members who have logged in over the last 1 or 2 months, but I have not cross referenced how many of these 200 are from that pool of 800+

In case these are spam bot accounts I may need to suspend them and force revalidation.
