 By default, a user's email notification preferences - "email me if I get a
 private message", etc - are set to 'On'. This could run afoul of various
 GDPR provisions, including the "informed and unambiguous consent" item.

 At a minimum, language about default email notification preferences should
 be added to the suggested Privacy Policy text. #7855

 We could change the behavior so that these preferences are turned off by
 default. However, I think this would be highly disruptive for the vast
 majority of communities. So any such change would have to be accompanied
 by a new workflow for forcing these preferences to be set: either at
 registration, or a persistent nudge after registration is complete.

 Thoughts and ideas would be welcome her.
