Description

I can't login to haiku-os.org at all.

when I attempt to request a new password "cb88 is not allowed to request a new password."

When I attempt to login using my old password I get "The name cb88 is registered using a reserved e-mail address and therefore could not be logged in."

I mentioned this on IRC but got no replies (I blame timezones!) so here is a bug report :)

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

The reason for the lockout is your @yahoo.com e-mail address (we denied those because of a spam wave). I have added an explicit allow rule for your address, so the problem should now be fixed.

Ah I see... well I actively use my yahoo account so it shouldn't produce any spam.

I find it a bit shocking that you have blacklisted entire domains rather than implementing smarter registration processes though. I believe the linux kernel mailing list have done the same... its quite unfortunate.

Anyway thanks for unblocking me.
