That was originally an anti-spam measure; I was getting a ton of automated spam bots using those addresses a while back. I've switched over to another anti spam plugin since then so keeping the block in place shouldn't be needed at this point. I've made an update and you should be able to use a .ru address now.

can somebody unlock or better sync my initial account ( yetanother**ixuser), because it was locked while messing around with this "email change" sorcery.
thanx

The forum software won't let me assign the same e-mail address to two accounts, so you'd need to PM me and provide an alternate e-mail address to update " yetanother**ixuser"). I went ahead an manually activated the account.

thank you neko, so since my former account is working again, the user "hagbard" can be deleted on next chance.
