Apple already has a lot of anti-spam/fraud accounts because they need to prevent iMessage spam (is your forum going to be subject to the same spam account pressure of a system like iMessage or iCloud?)

But also any argument that the makes spam harder to block also applies to Facebook or google logins - I can’t imagine spammers are using real email addresses with those services.

The only people this changes the experience for are actual users. Spammers already have a huge array of options to get “real email addresses”.
