The following errors were encountered:
* Email field contains invalid characters
It doesn't like my smithi.id.au address either, and after I'd written
such a polite 'why I want an account' story .. so if he's picking on
Ruskies, he's picking on Aussies too :)
I wonder if .us addresses are even available outside the US? Major
subdomains of .us include US states for example, and schools and such.
You can't register an .id.au domain unless an individual resident in
Australia; the DNS hasn't yet entirely been taken over by corporations.
Of course, if I could only afford .everything I could rule the world ..
