Beth Vayshenker is trying to use her address to register on the Commons, and is having two problems I can replicate:
1) The email BVayshenker@gc.cuny.edu is triggering the "Sorry, that email address is not allowed" error.
2) bethvayshenker is triggering the "Only lowercase letters (a-z) and numbers are allowed" error.

Thanks for the report, Marilyn. This is related to the WP 4.0 upgrade.
Technical explanation: WP 4.0 made the 'errors' property of `WP_Error` objects private. To make our wildcard email whitelist work, I'd been catching failed registration attempts from BuddyPress and unsetting the relevant errors. This no longer works. My workaround is to rebuild the error object, using the data from the existing one but skipping the one about invalid email addresses.
Resolved in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/774953f0f77c05502faafdf8c272bba33e539f5d and ready to test on the production site.
I was unable to reproduce the problem with the username. I'm wondering if this is a case of user error. Could I ask you to get the user to try it again?
