As James explained, newbies are more threatened to leave the game
by abusive people rather than failing at or missing team-speak.

As mentioned, newbies should get big flashy clues that they are in
abuse-protection mode and that the game relies heavily on
team-talk and that they are urgently advised to get used to morons
and ignore them and finally enjoy the game with the "right"
people and how to enable team-talk again.
(I'm sorry for the lot of "and"s)

Together with the new default RCD message this could actually lead
to more/ quicker team-speak usage by newbies.
