Filter out Discobot in engagement metrics

The new dashboard (which is nice!) contains a metric of user-to-user messages. These seem to include the messages that Discobot sends and that makes it fairly useless as a metric (since in small communities, new signups will dwarf PMs sent).

We launched in April, as you can see:

Feels like this metric should not include messages sent by or (solely) to users with negative ids (e.g. system and Discobot).

Hmm @joffreyjaffeux we usually exclude posts by users with an ID of 0 or lower (system users). There’s a constant for this in the Ruby code too.

Yes I know we have « real » users concept in code, this is an old report. Will check the code and apply this.
