Account inactive for 30 days (the account has not been logged on at all, from any location) and a mushroom purchase has been made at some point: Account is left alone.

Account inactive for 90 days (the account has not been logged on at all, from any location) and a mushroom purchase has been made at some point: Account is removed from the HoF, guild, etc. while being flagged as Inactive. To reactivate, the player logs on to an alert that a confirmation e-mail has been sent to him/her. They confirm the e-mail address again and they are put back onto the HoF where their honor belongs, guildless, but they can have their character back as they left it (minus the time that would be lost from mounts, potions, etc. if they had not already expired).

Account inactive for 180 days (that is half a year we are talking about) with a mushroom purchase at some point = deletion.
We'd honestly never want to delete and account that had been played at all. Sure, it's unlikely they'll return after 30 days, 180, whatever, but if they do, and the account is gone, they'd never stick around.

It's more likely that level 1's would be pruned (as suggested), because they didn't even do a single quest.
