Hello Aaron,

Thanks for letting us know about that! This is something we definitely
want to fix. It looks like new members after the 50 first members were
set to trust level 0, so I bumped that to 1, which should stick.

Are you sure that you originally had trust level 0? If you started with
trust level 1, then we might want to bump the starting level to 2,
because we trust our members, and so far there have been no complaints
about spam or inappropriate messages.

Thanks, : )
