Emails shouldn't go to hostspot owners unless they are ALSO tech officiers.  
Hotspot owners are the actual owners of the venue, not every group will want 
to make them administrators automatically.

Off course these thresholds should be configurable.

Cleanup.php already uses such a system.  However implementing our own or one 
of the existing pseudo-cron systems would be much friendlyer and decrease 
server load.
