Hi all,

Over the weekend, I was reminded that we don't have accounts watch their user page and user talk page by default. (I was actually surprised to hear this, and had to go create a test account to confirm.)

What do people think about this, and maybe changing the default to be the opposite? Especially with Echo, you get notified if someone leaves you a message, so maybe it's not a problem. However, it seems like a strange default to not watch these pages.
