Basically the system that consumed messages, for some
reason, was too slow. That, obviously, put a lot of stress
on RabbitMQ, and as it was before rabbit 2.0, at some point
Rabbit just died due to out-of-memory situation.
Reddit guys were unhappy to see Rabbit go down, but
in fact Rabbit was not the source of their problems.
It was just a side-effect of something else misbehaving.
