Accounts with '@' restricted

New accounts may no longer include the at sign (@) in their names (thanks to a bugzilla request). Users complained that many accounts with the symbol were mainly users who registered with their e-mail addresses, opening up the likelihood of spamming. In addition, many accounts with e-mail addresses as usernames were being blocked, according to username policy.
