[All Platforms] Prevent usage of temporary email accounts on Spotify accounts

My account was hacked tonight, they changed both my password and the linked email address to prevent recovery. The email they used was from **bleep**.com, a site that generates temporary email addresses. In order to make these things slightly more difficult for hackers, it would be sensible to block email accounts from those types of sites (there are many, e.g. temporarymail.com, temp-mail.org, **bleep** etc.). That way they would need email addresses with at least some kind of credibility.
