DFS "Unique Display Names" - argh

So OK, Yahoo sees a need to require a "Unique Display Name" for DFS users that once set, can never be changed.

I click the link in an email alerting me to this new requirement and find that my former name, "Yard Monkey," has been changed to "yardmonkey-17B9C."

Um...OK. So I'll just change it back to Yard Monkey. No can do!

The system tells me that "special characters" are not allowed.... and evidently a space between Yard and Monkey is a "special character." I can do YardMonkey, no space but still...

....why the heck can't I and presumably every other DFS player use a simple space ???

C'mon Yahoo...
