There's a little over 46,000 members, and I'd say probably only about 100 actually post frequently, or at least once in a while
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.
