I'm sorry, but could they not automate replacing spaces with underscores so that they send out a valid url?

PS, Congrats on coining a pseudoword.

Not sure why. The web-site isn't exactly 2.0, but it probably doesn't need to be anyway. It does have my mind trailing off in wonderful directions, though:

-What if URLs could include spaces? Just thing of all the tokenization fun to be had! Not to mention security issues abound.

-Do you think there will ever be a wave in the future where retro web pages will be nothing but text - straight HTML with no CSS, Javascript, etc.?

By the way, you wouldn't happen to be the Mark Anderson I met at CITCON 2007 in Dallas, would you?
