We have a async job on resque to expire passwords given an interval. No one have notice that this job stoped to work for a long time. It had about 8M jobs enqueued to process. Someone fixed the queue and send all jobs to be executed. We expired password for about 40% of our clients and some of them received more than a thousand password expiration emails in one day. Shit happens...
