No

Idea: Suppose, email adresses would be disallowed as
user names. When somebody forget their email adress,
the reminder window doesn't need to contain " user
name or email address" choice, the php code could
decide.

Gain: slightly simplified user interface.

Importance: next to none, just an idea.

Code: if (eregi("^[_a-z0-9-]+(\.[_a-z0-9-]+)*@[a-z0-9-]
+(\.[a-z0-9-]+)*(\.[a-z]{2,3})$", ...

Note: Please, don't disallow @ altogether.

Regards,
george
