Indeed I agree with Stewart, best follow the guidelines to a T if you don't
want your stuff reverted. Creating a new account isnt hard if you have a
gmail account:

Just add a +anythinghere before the @ symbol. Example:
osmstuff+import at gmail.com it will send emails to osmstuff at gmail.com
account, but you will be able to filter as the to address is
osmstuff+import at gmail.com

I'm not so sure about this, since it's been a catalyst for data
reversion on other imports.
