Reddit enforced email in order to make it harder to create alt accounts. Probably it's to stop vote brigading, but maybe also to track users better.

Either way, it's really easy to sidestep. Just use a service like 10minutemail that makes a fake email and you're golden. Honestly this is not a major cause for concern for the freedom of the Internet.
