Email invites get accepted instantly by click happy email servers

Apparently email servers in some organizations follow ("click") all links, to verify that the linked website (Talkyard, in this case) is safe.

But that means they auto accept the one-click invite links in invite emails from Talkyard.

So, Ty needs to link to an intermediate "landing page" that does nothing except for asking: Do you want to join this site as user ____? You were invited by: ____   [Yes]   [No. Bye]

and then the user needs to click Yes to accept the invite. — When fixing this, maybe could let the user edit his/her future username too? before the account gets created for real.
