Is there any way of weeding out the chaff?

No, not really.

The SIT database is not connected to the forum database, so any "weeding" would have to be done by hand.

This is a problem on all such name-lists, even those with e-mail addresses.
Some people "use" them, others just post names and wait to be contacted.

Either you monitor them constantly, which is a lot of work, or you leave them "as is",
in the hope that some people will get some use out them.

They may have opted out of receiving emails from rootschat in the belief that they'd be bombarded with adverts.

If that's the case then they'll never know somebody wants contact.
