You already have the reminder feature, that way people can dump newbies (or others) a reminder that they have a game going, and thus you can keep newbie's hooked...
So to me, the default mailing of moves is still excessive... even if you wanna to use it for keeping newbies on a leash.
A lot of people play very casually - they rely on the notification email to trigger any site activity.
Now it might be the fault of the RHP interface, but many people just do not discover all of the options available on this site. (I know, I answer a lot of feedback...) Most certainly would be very unlikely to turn ON the notification. As it is, we send the email - and can provide instructions on how to turn them off.
BTW : I think calling the email 'Spam' is a bit harsh.
We clearly state that we send move notifications on the home page. And they are hardly packed with adverts.
