When I signed up, I typo'd my email address. So of course I never got the confirmation email. However, I was able to log in and as far as I can tell, view everything, etc. So when I realized what I had done, I made the changes in my profile, got the new confirmation email that the website said was required to validate the changes. I clicked the link in that email and got the message that confirmation was not required. So all in all, it created the account and didn't actually require good information. As well as that confirmation didn't appear to work correctly the second time either.
