Re: Re:


I think you didn't get Patrick May's message:

"> From my perspective, the problem with this project is that it
consumed all memory on the server, leading to 3 server outages over
the weekend. Unfortunately the question of whether to ban is a moot
point, since I am compelled to block a denial of service.

"no more rhizome" if he doesn't block mi_ga
at least that's what I understand
Is that what you want?
