Microsoft Helping Orthodox Hackers' Parents Since Ten Days Ago

In "A parent's primer to computer slang," published two weeks ago by Microsoft, Orthodox Jewish parents can finally answer the question, "We thought AOL would help him. Where did we go wrong?":

Non-alphanumeric characters may be combined to form letters. For example, using slashes to create "/\/\" can substitute for the letter M, and two pipes combined with a hyphen to form "|-|" is often used in place of the letter H. Thus, the word "ham" could be written as "|-|4/\/\."
