Dead Souls in SN

I've never paid much attention to the membership numbers here. Right now it's up to 187,120, of which about 20% are "active" (whatever that means...)

However, I never realized (until I went to try and find a member's profile the hard way) that SN has apparently never purged its membership rolls. I noticed that there's a sizable majority (rough guess 80%?) that have identical join and last activity dates. This would seem to indicate they visited one day, joined, and never returned.

Any reason the dead souls can't be put to rest?

I mean, if somebody joined on 3 Sept 2004 and whose last activity was 3 Sept 2004, I'm betting they ain't coming back.
