Fixed 500 error message which is misleading by suggesting all rails apps have exception notifications by default. This discourages users from complaining when the site fails for them.

My 2 cents: The proposed message will make users wonder how to notify site owners! The existing message expects users to trust that the site owners are responsible (which all developers should be, imho).

god commented Aug 23, 2011

Fair enough, I would just propose getting rid of that line entirely. Don't explicitly discourage the user from contacting the site owner by showing that the site owner was notified (which isn't always true). Just show that there was an error.

Agreed with this pull request and god's comment. Just delete the entire line.

+1 for deleting the line.
