Comment (by DJPaul):

 I believe it's better to opt-in rather than opt-out. I think we should
 have a user opt-in to emails (belonging to active components). If another
 component is activated, then users should not be automatically subscribed
 to the new emails, either.

 I'm currently leaning towards turning off email notifications by default.
 As alluded to in #7866, I like the idea of a checkbox for "I've read the
 privacy policy" -- so if a BP site wanted to opt users in to emails by
 default, they'd be able to filter those back on, and that checkbox will
 get the user's consent.
