It has gone for two reasons:

1) The author was a serial pirate and redistributed many free and paid add-ons on his site.
2) If I recall, the number of database queries that it run were up into the hundreds. I believe it was 1 query * number of threads * number of users or something crazy like that.

There is an add-on in use at that I wrote, but we're not in a position to release it here yet.

Ah I see.
Thanks for your response, shame to hear about that author.

If anyone has any sort of other solutions do let us know, as well @Chris D if your willing to "sell" said add-on feel free to pm me with a $ request. Thanks!
