Default Dormant accounts retired

We have recently had several accounts that have been dormant for many years suddenly starting to post spam, with their profiles also changed to add spammy links.

Most likely these are due to PCs that have been compromised or members using the same username and password elsewhere.

I have now set all users who have not logged in since 1st January 2020 to "Retired" status and their titles are "Retired Dormant Member".

We feel that if someone has not logged in for 3 years it is very unlikely that they will return. In the rare event that they do, they have usually forgotten their password and/or changed their email address so contact us anyway.
