19:13 TimToady is there anything that is regularly removing old never-used accounts?
19:58 * BenBE can announce GeSHi on Github ;-)
19:58 BenBE Though not yet official as there might still be bugs waiting to be smashed ...
20:23 mikemol|zoe TimToady: Not to my knowledge, no.
20:23 mikemol|zoe And if someone's wielding automated banhammers without my knowledge, I'd be annoyed.
20:27 TimToady not banning, just making them readd the unused account if they're not just spamfodder
20:28 TimToady don't want someone going through and adding a 1000 spams using old accounts, is all
20:28 TimToady though I'm guessing that's unlikely, unless someone knows how to map the old names to their passwords
20:29 TimToady like if the original adder has a database of them somewhere
20:29 TimToady though you'd think they'd've used them by now, if that were so
20:30 TimToady so far all indicates are that they only track accounts very recently added by the botnet
20:31 TimToady but I'm not sure we should bank on that
20:32 TimToady it's also possible the accounts are set up with an easily guessable password on purpose

20:43 mikemol|zoe I think the best thing to do would be to remove the 'confirmed not to be a bot' status, however that's represented, after some period of inactivity. And require them to go through captcha and email confirmation in order to get out of it.
20:44 mikemol|zoe It's not really desirable to outright remove accounts; it damages db referential integrity. (Not exactly at a technical level, but in the sense that you're left with unattributed edits, even if those edits are hidden as deleted.)
20:45 TimToady well, I'm talking about the accounts that never made any official edits
20:46 TimToady (other than adding the account)
