membership: New Subscriber set to active

i'm using the more tag to protect content and i'd like all subscribers to be set to active when they signup...even the ones who don't complete payment. my membership site is live for few days now and i've been manually setting the susbcriber accounts to active for the ones who don't pay during first signup. alot of them return and complete payment.

barry mentioned in another thread that the membership plugin was first setup this way but was changed per requests and that he will make it an option in a future version.

I'd like someone to point out what I need to change to make new subscribers active, since i can't wait for a new release. Thank you.
