    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.
