Description Domas Mituzas 2008-04-20 16:56:35 UTC
On every user pageview Autopromote calls User::getEmail() which then wakes up CentralAuth, and goes to external data source. 

Possible solutions: 
Store user verification information at least in session.. 
Even better - not go to centralauth database for such views at all.
Comment 1 Tim Starling 2008-04-23 13:31:59 UTC
The only "Autopromote" I can find is in FlaggedRevs, and that only runs on ArticleSaveComplete and doesn't appear to call getEmail(). 
Comment 2 Siebrand Mazeland 2008-08-18 18:41:56 UTC
Domas, does this issue still exist?
Comment 3 Andrew Garrett 2009-03-17 05:44:16 UTC
Unable to reproduce.
