I am the Mailer 6.2 Daemon

After a brief debate about how to handle data from 4/26/2014 until the switch over here, it was decided that the best mix of safety for the database and practicality in terms of sheer workload to transfer hundreds of posts over was to do what we did and make things as you see them.
Just so you all know, the Mailer 6.2 Daemon is a mix of a python file to scrape all activity from 4/26 written kindly by Simon Ekstrand and the cutting and pasting by the hands of Daniel Ingram.
I realize full well that having duplicate threads and all of that is not perfectly optimal, but it is much better than the various other alternatives, some of which included simply losing about 11 days of posting, some of which involved simply staggering amounts of manual labor, and some of which involved possibly trashing a database that had taken nearly 2 years to get to the point where it is now.
My apologies if any chaos results,
Daniel "Mailer 6.2 Daemon" Ingram
