Please confirm your email/phone/other visible field

Am I the only one who is frustrated by the idiots who think that asking people to enter their email address twice will improve the quality of the data in their databases?  The "re-enter your password" pattern exists because when people enter their password, its not visible, so you have no way of knowing if you've made a typo or not.  Applying this pattern to email address, or vehicle registration numbers as Citylink do, makes absolutely no sense!

Rant over.
