    Log Message:
    Make the "ask qnet" language even more clear/alarmist

    Somehow, new users on Vertrauen *still* manage to answer "Yes" to both the QWK Networking account questions, accidentally creating a QWKnet account that's
    not useful for normal BBS user activities. So print a very clear "alert" style message making it even-more clear that the account they are creating will ONLY be useful for QWK Networking activities.

    Why don't you just put it as a selection in the qwk menu and take it out
    of the newuser script.

    Perhaps if/when the QWK menu is ever re-implemented as JS module, I might do that, but I'm not going to hard-code the exemptions and restrictions and alias mangling of a QWKnet account into the C++ source of every Synchronet system. That's best left as an option in newuser.js (as it is today) where very few BBSs not-named Vertrauen enable/use it.

    Modified Files:
    exec/newuser.js
    Log Message:
    More user details in the new user sysop-notification message

    This adds a Ctrl-A code in the notification subject, so needs latest postmsg.cpp or that Ctrl-A code will end up in your email/inbox too
    (not really supported or stripped when sent over POP/SMTP).

    Don't allow QWKnet accounts with login IDs that match the account password

    Don't give QWKnet accounts the 'M' (email messages per day) exemption by default as this has been abused by email spammers.

    These are security/anti-spam improvements.
