I've got nearly 5000 without any signs of issues.
I don't really want to delete them, because I've had a few really old threads show up on page 1 of my CP, showing new posts, and I've definitely appreciated the notification and sometimes even what was newly posted.
It's typically a terrible necro, but sometimes it's useful, or a necro that re-raises an unanswered thread/point and it finally gets resolved, years later, when someone (perhaps myself) had forgotten about it.
Storage wise: if this takes up more than a few megabytes at most, then they have serious coding issues. It should be simple text in the database, like a CSV or something.
It should be under a megabyte, in the kilobytes range, in all honesty.
When we can get full novels in such a tiny data package, a simple thread subscription should be stupid simple.
Of course, I don't know the VB coding structure, so who knows.
