FWIW, I occasionally use a "username" like that, coupled with a
mailinator or similar mostly anonymous email address, to "register"
for services on sites that I don't actually care about.  I don't see
why your site would get that, however, as it doesn't seem to lock
attractive content behind a desire to email me...
