Nice! I've run across this on free webmail and newsgroup services. You don't use the service, you get an automated email to remind you.
If you login to the account, the clock is reset.
If you don't login within a nominated time period the account could be quarantined -- removed from view, but not yet deleted -- for a further period of time. Hiding the account is a pretty good method of getting the attention of someone who ignores email and it gives DW a buffer to restore the account if the owner finally does respond.
I would hope it's possible to automate this kind of thing so it doesn't drain resources.
