Wolfgang , Rony,
I am astounded by your experience ;) as for me the regular case when
registering into a fancy forum is that at least 3 information data are
a) user name (alias which you use as public name in the forum), b)
password to logon and c) email address. (At some more serious fora point
a) is still split up into "real name" and "forum nickname", just to be
precise.) - Now a) and b) are normally required to logon into the forum
while c) is information in the background. You still want to have c) at
hand quickly e.g. in case you take separate communication contacts with
the providers etc. and wish to keep some continuity in that communication.
So I'ld say the Email field makes much sense and I definitely couldn't
work with the username field for it.
