[HOT] TM3 sending out unauthorised messages under validators names

I've raised this also. I think there are two issues here-- 1. the plethora
of emails being sent and whether this is annoying to some people, and 2.
the wording of the email does make it sound like it's from the validator
and doesn't make clear that it's automated, leading to misunderstandings
and confusion. (Also it's worded in a very, shall we say culturally
specific, way).

On the 1st issue I understand there is or will very soon be an option to
opt out of these messages.

On the 2nd issue I believe it's in a queue of TM3 issues to be addressed,
so that it's clear that the message is automated.
