Submission + - Blackberry password blacklist targets 'Pooh' gang->

netbuzz writes: "A blacklist of 106 names and words that are prohibited from being used as your BlackBerry ID is receiving attention this week for a couple of reasons. First, it was reported that the list would be applied for the first time in the upcoming BlackBerry OS 10, which isn’t true; it’s been around “for some time,” according to RIM. What is true is that the list is dominated by characters from the children’s classic “Winnie-the-Pooh.” Five of them in all, even Eeyore."
