I would like to make my discussion list (on the community site) automatically prune discussions (entire thread) that has not been modified in 3 days. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to accomplish this?

I would prefer not to have the discussions deleted, but instead moved to an archive (not yet created). Not sure if archiving a thread will impact a users reputation, but ideally I'd like to leave their reputation alone if possible.

I used discussion board for a notice-board and I had your same problem.
To resolve it, I added a boolean field to le list. ( Archived)
Then I deployed a custom web part to show the notice not archived.
A daily timer job was updating the item. (I used expiration day).

Hope it helps ;)
