    120 members deleted their accounts on there since we had the option

    120 accounts deleted since having the option. That's not bad. No bans I don't think. Once was extended for life. Can't say who. And 8000 I removed for not logging in for 2 years. So our new figures is under 15,000. We had 3000 login over 30 days. That's not bad. 20% of users.
