Based on the previous note about removing potentially dead accounts,
here are some suggestions on dealing with user/post bloat.

It does become a problem with any database backend.

These types of maintenance operations need to occur otherwise
the database will decrease in performance.

Users:

As for people that have joined and not posted, the real issue is
do they return?

If not, it sounds like a dead account.

This could be a 6 or 12 month maintenance.

Posts

Is the posting dead? If the post old and it's view count is single digits,
it's a likely candidate.

Is the post title ambiguous? The more unclear a post title is, the
less likely it will be read.

Was this topic helpful button. I've seen this before on a webforum.
Helps surface the more useful posts.

The "Best Of" post FAQ. Same idea as the classic yahoo list group
posts. Some are real keepers.
