Ability to require email validation prior to submitting, commenting, or voting on a public idea portal

Aha! user should be able to check a box on their public idea portal settings to require "guest" idea submitters to validate their email prior to submitting an idea, commenting, or voting.  This would provide a safeguard against SPAM and otherwise abusive users on public portals.

    Aha! seems to have a really bad habit of not incorporating common sense or minimum functionality requirements in to their product.

    This should be considered essential.

    Great idea.  We have some very "passionate" users and they have setup 100's of fake e-mail accounts to vote for ideas...annoying.

    This feature was my obvious expectation from a public portal. It helps to: 

    • to avoid idea spamming
    • to have valid contact point(e-mail) of the idea owner
