"You can enable auth.require-email-verification to require users to verify their email addresses before they can take actions within the system. With this option off, we're intentionally permissive to make it easy for users to sign up and interact with the system."
In fact, I don't see why we shouldn't be permissive as well. I verified immediately when I registered here, and I wasn't bothered about the notification received when I tested this situation after registering at secure.phabricator.com.

The reason to be restrictive is that emailing unverified addresses can get you blocked by ISPs; cf. https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=56414

I'm marking this as resolved because we can enable auth.require-email-verification if we want it.
But was it enabled? I don't understand whether configuration of this instance is assumed to be carried over to production, or there's a list somewhere of configuration switches to change once the production instance is set up.
