Comment (by Otto42):

 For reference, that isn't the email address, it's the username. Those are
 old spam accounts that used the same values for email and username.

 We no longer allow accounts to have email addresses as their username.
 Been like that for a few years. Usernames must be lowercase alphanum only.
