Sign Up problem ... Email address begins with a number

fyi -

I tried to sign up using an email address that begins with the number '2'
The sign up Form would not accept this.... and says 'use a valid address'

I assume the Form rejects an email address beginning with a number.
I'd suggest removing that limitation on the form/rules.

note:  I used a different address and got signed up;=)  .

I  Had trouble using a gmail address and got the exact same error message. I  switched to an old hotmail account and got right through.  Very odd indeed...
