Enhance the wiki by allowing account expirations without contributions 14 days after registration.
Why? A registered account can have a watchlist, and receive e-mails from other users, etc. Without editing the wiki.
Relevant discussion can be found at, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:No_open_proxies#TOR_again regarding sockpuppets and sleeper accounts.
This is not an acceptable solution to the problem. It's not a solution at all, either, since one typo-fix or spacing change per account is trivial to do, maybe even with a bot.
And this is not a feasible idea again. If we decide to expire those accounts with no edits in 14 days after their creation, an ill-tempered sockpuppet creator will simply get around this by doing a trivial edit in the accounts' own user page, for example. If, on the other hand, we decide to expire all accounts if they have no edits in 14 days, then ... you already know what happens!
