Either way you work hard to drive traffic to your website in various forms such as SEO, website banners, email marketing, word of mouth, etc. After you are spending a lot of time and money on getting that traffic, you want the users to engage with your site, and be legitimate.
No point in collecting a bunch of fake user sign ups, it is just spammy and a waste of your time. So how exactly do you find out if an email address like firstname.lastname@example.org is a real account or not? You need to start using email validation.
