Now that new users can mail groups, it would be good to have Akismet scan those mails, right? It’s turned off by design now.
Hmmm maybe … we have not had any issues with this quite yet, but mainly cause we are polling gmail that takes care of spam scanning for us anyway.
Reasonable idea but I would much much much much rather get Akismet scanning new user About Me entries before this. That is an actual problem in practice, this is only a problem in theory.
