How do you know who signs up are genuine?
There is no (easy) way to tell if the sign ups are genuine, other than trusting the submitted information, and checking that the point on the map is somewhat correct against the address (street,city,country) given.
As I check data for duplicates (based on the map point and private information), I will notice if someone signed up twice (or seven times as one did), and try to select the profile with the most correctly formatted information (or the latest sign up).
This is where the importance of getting as much (non sensitive) private data as possible, because a very few people really have enough imagination to make enough fake sign ups to destroy the purpose of the map.
