Emails can be validated (in the same way your email client immediately
informs you that an address is not valid: it checks with the target mail
In any case if the user bothers to create an email account just to post a
bug report, then he *really* wants to report the bug but he doesn't to be
My experience is that I don't mind being contacted back if I report a bug
but I won't register into yet another site just to report a bug (unless I
start to use the bugged program regularly)

I believe that it is important to get some feedback (even if it's hate
feedback) from people who have a bad experience and are giving up on LO
because of some initial obstacle... Maybe the obstacle is can be removed for
others after them...
