User profile pages should have a link to send a message to a user.  This would send an email
to their primary email address on record (if an email address is set).  Similar to SourceForge's

The sender address should be the actual email address of the sender, so that the recipient
may reply.

We should include rate limiting so that a user cannot send too many messages.  The old SF
one has rate limiting implemented as: a mongo collection that stores {_id: user id, times:
[array of times when messages sent]} and 2 config values for max # of messages and time interval.
 When accessing the form or posting the form, check to see if the times array and delete any
older than the config interval, if the size of the array is larger than the config max # messages,
show an error to the user.  When posting the form successfully, append a new timestamp to
the 'times' array.

Include an option to CC the sender.
