Oh, sorry about that.

Posting to article talk pages was never considered as part of the design or
architecture of MassMessage. You'd have to play around with it or read the code
to be sure, but I imagine it won't work well without a bit of additional
coding. As I recall, if you try to post to the article namespace, it'll just
get logged as a skip currently. On the other hand, I think talk pages are often
categorized. You could simply use those categories instead.

There are other quirks. For example, Meta-Wiki actually has a few discussion
boards in the main (article) namespace. But generally speaking talk pages are
for talk, yes. :-)
