Facebook rejects offbeat names

The Washington Post carries a story about people with offbeat names who could not have Facebook profiles with those names. Names such as Batman, Super, Six, Yoda, Pancake, etc. I kid you not!

Now before I give you the link to that article, consider my surname (last name), Dicks. Can you see the irony in that?

If you think that Batman, Super, and the rest on those list were mocked at school, think how I was mocked. But, I am glad I am the kind of person I am. Anyone who mocked me, got double the portion back. Kids soon learnt that mocking me was like looking into a mirror.

Now read the Washington Post article, Offbeat Name? Then Facebook's No Friend.
