Comments on the following newsitem

Unless someone has good reasons not to do it, all hosts who have not communicated with a project for more than two months will no longer be included in the statistics.
Host stats are growing explosively. One of the reasons is the ease with which a system changes its CPID which generates lots of duplicates. There are also a lot of systems no longer functioning. In my opinion it’s not necessary to know what a Pentium III host with Windows XP did back in 2004.
Writing a comment is your chance to convince me otherwise.

Sounds like a great idea. Will all of the inactive hosts be deleted from our host lists? Sounds like a good way to clean up our individual lists as well as the database.

I've been thinking about something along these lines recently too.

Personally I think it should be done in the boinc server software to not even put these hosts in the xml in the first place.

That would be best, however it will take a long time before all projects have updated to the latest code.
