Irish Blogs top 100 — should old blogs be trimmed?

Over on the Technorati Top 100 of Irish Blogs list, I’ve noticed something; quite a few of the listings have stopped publishing, such as number 5, Tom Murphy’s

I’m wondering — should no-longer-publishing blogs be listed? Technorati still keeps their ranking high — clearly old data is not expired from the Technorati database for at least a year. But maybe my scripts should use last-post-published time, from where available, and discard blogs that haven’t put anything up in something like 4 months.

What do you think?
