Yes this is known as pruning, from the looks of it CF almost never prunes it's threads or members.

Pruning members CAN be some what of a hassle but not if you do it correctly.

For example if you pruned out all non-active members. That would be bad... Because you would delete all the old members with like 12,000 posts that only post once a month.

What you should do is prune all non-active members with 25-50 or less posts.
If you wanted to make it even more secure you could prune 25-50 or less posts and less that 10-20 rep.

Don't prune anyone.

Just do like I said and sort it better.

Pruning is actually a good thing to do. It can save(depending on the forum size) a massive amount of database space.

Click, you see all the useless accounts that have been made? Yeah.. Useless waste of space.
