merrily? i'm not saying that we just walk in and zap a shitload of accounts. in fact, i was happy we had so much talk over what the best way to query for them was. if an account has the same email address, i'd call that a genuine reduadant duplicate(?). we'll know which ones they are because the query will tell us. if a person hasn't logged back in to evolt within a year, i think its safe to say that they won't have a reaction because they'd probably forgot about us/their accounts/ in the first place, no? .djc.
