The invalidation of a username does not discriminate why it's invalid which is why both reasons are there in the message "in use or invalid" It would give the same message if you tried to sign up with the name Administrator

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I think he said "I don't know how to do that with the software I have."

I could be mistaken.

The LORD is my light and my salvation--so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?

Although his user name contains a @ it does not appear to be a valid email address.

it actually isn't as his real email address is @gmail.com

so, that might be a reference to a place in time for him....

So who pays any attention to that, except you looking for something to gig me with? The intro post was dated yesterday.

Personally, I say handle them by a case by case basis. People will get smart and some have found a way around the @ symbol just by using the word "at"...... I would make it a rule that emails or any resemblance of an email can not be used. There will never be an end to scammers, never.....

I don't allow them either, I force them to change it.

if they don't reply on the forum, I change it to the first part of the name they use, then email them the new name....
after that, it is up to them.

so far, that has a 100% success rate.
