 Replying to [comment:20 imath]:
 > I saw in the patch that it was possible to « bypass » the fact
 registration was disabled by the administrator activating an option to
 allow members invitations. I’m unsure we should do that. I feel the
 members invitations should be active by default if user accounts can be
 created and then use the `bp_is_active` filter to eventually deactivate
 > I may be wrong but I believe if an admin disallows registration he would
 also disallow members invitations to be the only one to control who can

 Hi @imath, thanks for your comments. I feel pretty strongly that allowing
 registration via  invitations when public site registration is disabled is
 a key part of this change, because it allows site owners to use a referral
 system to build a community of trusted users (and would go a long way
 toward keeping spam users to a minimum, if that is critical for your
 community). Because it is a potential opening, I've made the invitations
 feature an opt-in for the site administrator, so that she must choose to
 open that vector, rather than be surprised by it. I have added a message
 to the opt-in section when site registration is disabled, too, to make the
 "danger" clear (see
 above). Maybe @boonebgorges could weigh in, because it seems to me that a
 limited registration scheme is important to his plugin Invite Anyone.

 Thanks again!
