Concur. I require prospective members of the R1b1c7 project to request
membership rather than have it granted in exchange for a mouse click. If
they have misunderstood the principles controlling membership (some think
that R1b1c7 means "Scots-Irish" for example) I try to point them to a
project that might better achieve their research goals.

For the Wilson surname project, I do not screen members.
