Weird Email Address in WordPress Registration Spam

My Crawling Chaos website refused access to a registration spammer recently.  They had the email address of …

auiq.a.j.i.a.p.y.c.e.2.0.3.6.6@gmail.com

This is a first for me for the number of extra full stops in the lead part of the address!  Perhaps it’s part of a new kind of attack – I don’t know but I’ll be bearing it in mind for the future.  Googling it shows it appearing on several forums, as you’d expect.  This link, https://www.stopforumspam.com/ipcheck/70.237.128.38 shows it on one IP address.  It hit me from 68.106.216.31 at 2008-10-20 07:58:34

er..that’s all.
