We have started working on the new system again. There appears to be no way
to kill some of the old notes so you may get some of them. However, we have
set everyone to moderated so you shouldn't get hammered with a bunch of
SPAM outside of possibly getting some backlog "you can't comment" notes.
The you can't comment notes would have occurred during the issue on October
1st and the moment I pulled the plug on emails. Your note would have been
going to the new server when I rejected it and also turned off the systems
capability to reply. It appears it saved all of its to send at a later
We don't get to see that queue so there's no way for to us to change it. We
didn't even know it had a queue until a moment ago.
This is step one of a few to get things normalized.
