there is a fix for this, and it works on ANY website. Not just Deviant Art. 
It seems that DA is one of the few (or the only?) major communitiy to not follow the rules for ARPANET host names in this regard.
Deviant Art won't correct it since so many users already have names with this format, but have a workaround. You might want to try reading their FAQ in the future:


Hope this helps.
PS, yes, it works on Ubuntu. Tested on Hardy without trouble.
