Rollback and clean up code from T178842
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points

Description

We've decided the benefits to T178842: If a user has never triggered a logged action on a wiki, they should not be able receive emails by non-privileged users from there are minimal and the drawbacks are too complex to address individually so we will rollback T178842.

This form of harassment can be addressed in T16950: [Epic] Support global preferences on Wikimedia wikis

But I'll state here yet again that I think we can find more intuitive ways for users to be proactive about their email correspondence.

Clean up/get rid of the code too, we won't be coming back to this concept.

@kaldari, What's the workflow/process for rolling back a patch?

It would include the work done in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/391751/ and this config change https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/397768/

Yes. Don't bother to remove the messages from any language other than en and qqq - the rest will be removed by the TWN bot.
