#4781: Prevent Restricted Emails from Submitting Plugins

Component:  Plugin Directory  |   Keywords:
 We have certain email providers (eg Yahoo) prohibited from signing up for
 new user accounts, due to bounce back issues.

 This does not prevent _existing_ users with those emails from submitting
 plugins or themes. And sadly that means their reviews will fall off into
 the ether.

 We should incorporate this list of prohibited emails from being able to
 submit plugins, preferably with a polite error that informs them their
 email host is non-compliant with sanity.
