Introduce a requirement for address verification for internet applications

We've got to get real regarding issues with Bots and third-party actors on social networks and other internet applications. The hate and anger we are seeing online must be stopped and one of the only tools we have to do so is to make people prove who they say they are.

What I am proposing is this...

Any application designed for access by the general public and allowing internal messaging or commenting or any other intra-user communication must verify the postal address of users.

All applications to either filter out un-verified users by default or provide a mechanism to allow users to opt-in and opt-out of receiving messages from un-verified users.

All existing application users to be subject to the same verification procedure within a time limit.
