New Member Appeared and then Disappeared?

Today I was checking my site from my cell phone while out and I saw that a new member called let's say '' registered. I remember thinking that it's odd that someone can register with a dot com and that I would have to ask that member to change their member name when I got home.

I came home and there is no member by that name at all. Where did it go?

It's been several hours since I saw this.

Is it possible for someone to use a .com or .org as part of their member name and how is it possible that the member was there and is now gone (I'm the only admin)?
