MSN is the bastard son of a syphilitic donkey.

Your display name cannot contain certain words, such as some Microsoft product names, and words or phrases that are considered vulgar or offensive. There are also some commonly used terms that are invalid for use in display names including "email," "member," "system," "account," and "tech."

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.

(p.s.: apologies for the cross-posting here and on ~peevish...)
