Using jquery validation plugin, how do I get rid of duplicate error messages?

I am new to jquery, and I'm trying to implement a fairly complicated form validation using the validation plugin. (complicated for me at least).

I have two pages:
http://www.rewardsring.com/sandbox/signupV.html
http://www.rewardsring.com/sandbox/signup2V.html

You can easily view the javascript that I wrote, as it is within the page.

On both pages, I SOMETIMES get duplicate error messages. For example, on page 1, enter the email address "asd@asd.com". Move to the next box, then come back and erase the ".com". The error message appears twice?
This happens in numerous places on both pages.

How do I fix this?

Try this instead
'user_email': {             // compound rule
      		required: true,
      		email: "Please enter a valid email address."
      	},
