    I am in a UK senior forum with almost 14,000 members but usually only 60 or 70 regulars online, I think we do better on percentages ;)

    Receiving forum emails is no longer the default. Every forum I have ever had or been a member of has had far more inactive than active members. This one is less than a year old so there's no need to do so yet, but when it gets older, I'll remove some of the inactive ones. Some people come back after long absences, so it doesn't hurt to have them there, as they are more likely to return if they still have a member account. Others join and even log in now and then, but never post. Lurkers will sometimes participate after they become comfortable with the forum, but others will register, read some posts and probably think about maybe taking part in the forum at some later date, but then forget about it. Glancing through the member list, it looks like many of those who have never posted haven't been back since the day they created the account. I know that I've registered with forums that I've never posted in, or that I've posted in only a few times. Regardless of their mail preferences, I can email anyone who is registered but I don't like to annoy people.
