Where does one set mesg to y on boot?


Where is mesg set to  'n' as a boot-up default? Makes talk 
virtually useless, at least with our folk. I have looked at all
(most?) of  the boot stuff in /etc and its subdirectories, and
.bash_profile. Didn't find it. 

mesg n prevents interruptions, but I prefer a more friendly

Please excuse this if it is a 'newbie' question, just point to the
manual, and I'll appreciate it.
