XF 1.4 Make Users Fill Email Field Twice to Avoid Misspellings

I'm really tired of users making typos in their email address when signing up.

Would it be straightforward to have a second field for the email, to confirm it? And those two fields would need to match?

@Shiro's Trust + add-on lists this as a feature:
  • Detect and block users who are behind the Tor Anonymity Network.
  • Detect and block users who are attempting to register with a disposable email address.
  • Detect and block users who are attempting to register with a non-existent email address.
  • Detect and block users who are behind web proxies, such as Glype and CGIProxy.
  • Detect and block users who are behind a Virtual Private Network.
  • Detect and block users who are registering from an IP address belonging to a network commonly used by spammers.
  • Detect and block users who are registering from other high-risk networks.
  • Differentiate between commercial-use and home-networks, and optionally block users on commercial networks.
  • Detect and optionally block users who may be behind HTTP or SOCKS proxies by use of an open proxy scan. (scoring customization required)

Hello,

To clarify: Trust+ does not require you to enter your email twice as confirmation - it can reject registrations from users using non existent domains or domains which lack an MX record.

Thanxx for the clarification. I realize it doesn't ask the user to input their email twice, but instead uses a better method of actually validating if a given email address is valid vs. containing a typo. ;)
