How would you deal with, say, Announcements that are posted in a forum and then locked so that there are no replies - would it still be a requirement to purge these?
No. That slipped my mind that some settings don't prune like Sticky, Polls or Announcements, that might be locked for no replies. I can only think maybe the Prune Threads with no replies should "exclude" them 3 things, so they still work as intended in the auto prune settings.
Only staff are going to post Sticky and Announcement topics usually, which you do want to remain intact. As far as polls go, which is more the problem I think you mean, you can always disable Polls from not being used on any forum you auto prune anyway, or even only let staff create polls on that forum using forum permissions to work around members creating too many polls with no replies and remaining undeleted (not pruned)
