Do you have a problem with users using their real e-mail address to sign up to your SE Site and then changing it to a FAKE email address?
By users changing the e-mail address can use you to have a lot of bounce back emails and you SE messages not getting through also if the FAKE e-mail is liked to a real account they could SPAM your Domain which can cause a few problems for you.
This small mod can help remove that problem by removing the E-mail field from the settings section once they have signed up.
They would need to contact an Admin to change this.
