Yeah. It was Erik Snow who sent the PM (I did save the PM, but, obviously, I can't retrieve it at this time). There was also a dummy torrent that had been "seeded" before (or about the time) that the PM was sent. The text on the torrent's announcement page instructed people not to donate to HC, and the front page, that is used to solicit donations, was also changed to say that we should not donate at this time.

IIRC, the PM and the two posts made at HC made no direct reference to kinks in the donation system: they said that there were issues that needed to be resolved. Mister Snow did not say what those issues were, although it seems (and has seemed) to me to be quite apparent they are.
