I don't know what you mean. Setting them back to "don't subscribe"? It's all the old subscriptions that were killing us, so that would have done nothing for us, although we are looking to do that next, so we can avoid doing this again in the future.

As for killing the email code, yeah we could have commented that out and still may, but we want it to be working for current users who subscribe. We realize they have to be rebuilt, but starting fresh and being quick was our goal.

Do apologize though.
