Your script is broken. I got an email yesterday talking about not logging in when I was here two days ago.

This is the second threat this place has email me re: attendance.

Please stop threatening memberships! This is a discussion forum, not a job.

The surest way to seal your casket is to start kicking people off for going on hiatus.

Shit happens to everyone, life is a bitch and the Internet is a big place.

That first email was when i was testing it and i coded a bug where you got the wrong reminder (my script ran for about a dozen members before i killed it).

I have notified members that have NEVER logged in then they will be deleted soon (fair enough).

I sent a reminder about us to those people who haven't logged for over a year ~ can't be a bad thing ?

I think you are right though but it's housekeeping too.

I will go easy, as per your advice.
