Comment (by dcavins):

 Hi @imath-

 Thanks for your comments. Let me clarify a few of my less-than-clear

 • In this ticket, I'm only trying to accomplish invitations to a
 BuddyPress instance, I guess that is the "network" or the "base site of a
 network" though the terminology is pretty sloppy around these concepts. If
 successful, the user would be added to the `wp_users` table.

 • "Public" or "private" sites as I'm describing here is not a technical
 concept. I'm describing how a BP admin could choose to allow registration
 on her site. At the moment, the options are "anyone can register" and "no
 one can register." A side goal of this ticket is to allow the BP admin to
 have more control over new membership, which is a big problem (mostly
 spam) for the niche networks that I admin. "Anyone can join" works for
 Facebook, but BP seems to work best when it's more targeted, and less
 overrun by spammers. So, I see a real opportunity here to offer new modes
 of membership that fall between "Anyone can join" and "No one can join."

 I agree wholeheartedly with your GDPR thoughts, too. That seems like
 another nice opportunity here.

 Thanks again!
