Post PMs/Spam Announcement & error 500 msgs - update
Hi Folks,

Steve, the new owner, here.

Apparently, the PMs sent out over the last week have caused a major headache. People are replying to the PMs with reply-all causing inboxes to overflow & tempers to rise.

I've shut down PMs for the time being to let up on everyone's inboxes _and_ to free up system resources. Many folks have been reporting many error 500 msgs and this is likely contributing.

Stand by as I hunt down what else might be causing the error 500 msgs.

Update: After sprinkling some magic pixie dust on the primary server, shutting down PMs (temporarily - still down though), and doing a little dance I'm finding the server much more speedy. I'll be watching the logs, but things are looking better ATM.

Update2 (Mar 25th) I've re-enabled PMs, but with a limit on how many people can be replied to. Hopefully, IF there is continued replies this should put a bit strangle hold on them. Let's see how things go.
