I would like to seek your advice on a rather persistant problem that we have been experiencing lately with our forum. We have a lot of people registering on a daily basis but they do not contribute to the discussion group.
Other than eventually deleting their account, is there an effective way of handling this problem technically. I heard that some administrators actually screen their members.
Frankly, a forum is only a success when its members contribute to it.
Your thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

I am working on trimming down the database as we speak although it is difficult to keep up with the volume of members registering daily.
