so reads the criteria for MSN screennames. so. having just discovered the song "being alive" and decided that i really liked the lyrics (sondheim, from company, 1970), i decided to change my screenname to the following:
"...i'll always be there, as frightened as you, to help us survive..."
and MSN throws up an error message telling me it's invalid.
i blink. go "what?!". and try it again. same result.
off i go to the help pages to find above criteria. i blink again, frown in consternation, and mutter about it. i try again. same result, of course.
so, eventually, it lets me have "i'll always be there, as frightened as you" as a screenname. without the last four words. i try "to help us survive" on its own. this, apparently, is invalid.
what the frell??
i shall have my revenge. just you watch.
