Emailing in the name of God

Yahoo bans the character string "allah" from all email names.

In other words, your email address can't be allahuakbar@yahoo.com, but it also can't be christinecallahan@yahoo.com. However, something tells me that this move is not due to too many people of Irish extraction registering for email accounts.

More is here, with a list of other character strings you can't use in your email address. Ann Coulter will be disappointed to see that "raghead" is one.
