Yahoo Versus Allah and Dirty Harry

What do Allah and Dirty Harry have in common? They are both banned by Yahoo as name handles for Yahoo mail.

Now there is a case in Britain where someones legitimate last name is Allah. And they are being banned for using that name. They have submitted the name through Verizon which apparently has a partnership with Yahoo.

Names not banned according to The Register include:

"... it will accept god, messiah, jesus, jehova, buddah, satan and both priest and pedophile."

We wonder why Dirty Harry was banned. Perhaps Yahoo is wondering if Dirty Harry has another bullet:

I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots, or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But, being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya punk?

Yahoo may just be shaking in their boots.
