I meant rather than having everyone with email subs, you did a blanket reset of the notification method, so everyone was subscribe only - no more emails sent out en mass.
Much less painless than a purge, and the same net result.
We'd have all had our subscriptions, which as "subscribe only" shouldnt put any load on the servers.
