[Elinux-discuss] culling wiki users

There's been an increase in the number of User accounts being created
that are dummy accounts attributed to potential spammers.  Therefore
I'm going to run a script that removes unused accounts.

An unused account is one which has no edits, no deleted edits, no log
entries, and no current/old uploads.

Of the 8467 current registered users, 3716 accounts will be removed by
this script.  If you have a wiki account and have never made a wiki
edit, simply login and add something to your User page to prevent your
account being removed.  You can do this by clicking on your User name
after logging in.

I will be running this script on Friday.
