Is there an easy way to delete the account? I don't think so. Some of these accounts are over 6 years old, and the user may have got rid of their 770 in the meantime.

There has *never* been an unfiltered email sent out, and to do so now would not be because it's the right thing to do, but because if a lack of foresight and planning of the votinng process.

That's why having a filter is sensible. If my "karma decays" idea had been implemented, a threshold would tell you not only that someone had been active but whether it had been recently.

I don't get what the big deal is since Maemo.org has sent about 1 e-mail 
out a year. It's for a legitimate reason for a Maemo.org event. If a 
user doesn't want an e-mail about Maemo, why did they create a Maemo
