When attempting to register for HaikuDepot, the registration is rejected if the email address does not meet some standard set by Haiku-OS.org. I understand that some kind of tests should be done in an attempt to filter SPAM/Bot attempts to register, but perfectly normal addresses should not fail. The filtering is too coarse.
It should not be necessary to use one of the (expletive deleted) "free" email services such as Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, Yahoo! mail.
[Aside] I registered a domain name decades ago (at the very beginning of public accessibility to the Internet via the World-Wide Web). I did so after my ISP was absorbed by a larger company and I had to change my email address. I vowed that would never happen again. I registered mylastname.net and setup an email account, myfirstname@…
There are many (thousands? tens of thousands? hundreds of thousands?) people who do something similar. Some use a domain name that reflects a small business, some their hobby,... Aside
So, the filter being used is too coarse. There is something wrong when
is filtered out as suspected Spam.
I still use that (and others).
