Sounds like Wiggins is trying to turn this into a dating service. <p>Hmmm.... Such a crazy idea, it just might work. <p>"M: You always hold a slot in my thoughts. Can't get you out of my hed. Must lede with my heart. Let's put this paper to bed."

Simply, it's a message to member, using the initial of their first name and asking them to see their private messages. Brain in administrative mode at the time.

I thought "private messages" made such public notices unnecessary.

Seeing as I am in self-effacing mood I can reveal this: One of the reporters has given one a nifty portrait of one.
It is called The Subeditor Drinking and is based on Marc Chagall's The Soldier Drinking (the latter shown below).
