Enable Special:Mute by default
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Is there any reason why $wgEnableSpecialMute and $wgEnableUserEmailMuteList should be disabled by default?

If not, can we enable them by default?

Surely it should be possible for users to reject unwanted communications.

These two variables are enabled by default for all WMF wikis in production. @Bmueller do you have any objection to making this a default setting in MediaWiki, so that third party installs of MediaWiki have these variables enabled by default?

May also want to consider $wgEchoPerUserBlacklist.
