That happens to us all the time. My husband gets furious. He tries to 
order something online and the order form is rejected. Occasionally 
he'll use "Gray", but if payment is required that doesn't work because 
the order name doesn't match the name on his credit card.

I have been rejected from joining several online mailing lists and 
forums, and it is one of the main reasons I add my maiden name to my 
signature. Sometimes I concatenate the two names without a space, just 
to get access to various places.

I also receive an inordinate amount of spam about sexually-oriented 
groups and publications. But after 25 years of all this, it is better to 
retain a sense of humor and make jokes about it. One gets weary of 
fighting. I'm just thankful that caller ID has stopped all the 
nine-year-olds from making their anonymous phone calls to us at 3 AM.

And now back to our regularly scheduled celebrations.. :)
