      Description

      There are other issues about this that came out of the UMN user research work two years ago.

      Basically people get confused about the entire interface.

       - they think it's the MAIN messaging interface (instead mark it clearly as BULK)

       - they get lost in the wierd UI (instead remove the "keep searching" and simplify it to select users, then type message, then send)
