The "Adopt a Newbie" concept is not an official board function, as it has been simply a movement among membership. While exceptionally
admirable, there are no controls in place for something like open U2U's for new members.
There has been a movement in DISC to organize a "Welcome Wagon" effort. If this gets off the ground, new members will be able to communicate via U2U
with "Welcome Wagon" membership.
The restriction will not be modified. The screening process has made a big difference, but we still get spammers... just fewer of them.
