    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?

    It would require custom development.

    @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. ;)
