Having a look at some of the old threads and posts I realised that my site is carrying around a huge amount of baggage that I am paying for yet adds no value to my site today. I have seen threads that contains posts like (as an example):
"Who is doing what this Saturday"
"I am doing this"
"I am doing that"
etc etc etc
Meanwhile my database is growing huge, searching takes longer, so many old files taking up hosting space, old mods/addons that don't perform a clean uninstall, hosting needs more ram and processor resources, more disk space, so much more to maintain like defunct smilies...all in all there is so much that is not only costing me more money to maintain and making maintenance take so much longer when possibly 25 to 33% adds no value to my site what so ever.
So I am interested to hear what others have as perhaps a kind of policy on what they do, if anything, about the baggage that their site carries around because a day will come when carrying around all this baggage can cause great headaches.
