I see things have improved little since the days when I couldn't have a Hotmail account with my real name (because "Cumming" is an offensive term) but I was able to register using the name Ivana Watch-Teenz-Screwing.

PS Went into my archives to check on this and discovered two things:

1. It was actually Ivana Watch-Teens-Give-Head and here are two screen shots that date back to April 2003 showing the denial of my real name and the acceptance of Ivana.



2. In the same period Google used to serve pornographic ads against my name.


Just out of curiosity, why did you register under "Ivana Watch-Teenz-Screwing" ?

Tests an offensive, obviously fake name, and inclusion of hyphens.
