What are you using to gather "inactivity" metrics?  I have a subscription
account that I very rarely sign into because LWN has an RSS feed that
typically gives me all the information I need.  However, I do use the
subscriber account if something pops up in my RSS feed that sufficiently
interests me to actually start a web browswer and sign in to see the
subscriber only content.

Oh, and it's not a Fedora subscriber account.  I'm just curious.
