 authorize_reply_query, as the name implies, gets per-user reply items
from db. If the table "contains millions of records" then most likely
the one who designed the system (I'm guessing not you) have lots of
per-user reply items there, or you might simply have lots of users.

If you REALLY know what you're doing (the emphasis on REALLY), then
you can create a new table with the same schema, and use it for
${authreply_table}. That way there will be no per-user reply items.
