I'm pretty sure they are. I could be wrong, I haven't tried a name like that, I don't think

It will not let you put spaces in so spaces are not allowed...

You can't have dashes at the beginning and end of your name like that...

it's basically people asking why, and then people asking to change their name from -Bob- to Bob because some inactive alt is hoggin it...

then tom takes the alt, see's if it's active, and if it's not, he deletes it, or adds numbers after it...

Well, since hyphens between individual letters are still kosher I might as well overload myself on them.
