The following errors were encountered:
    * Email field contains invalid characters

It doesn't like my 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 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 ..

cheers, Ian
