Out of concern for the integrity of her surname, Margaret C. O'Connor has founded the Society for the Protection of Apostrophes.
I started the SPA because I was frustrated and angered when computers refused to let me enter my whole name. I received threatening messages - "You have input illegal characters" or "You may only enter letters in this field, not numbers or signs".I expect that The Apostrophe Protection Society will spell her name correctly on their cease-and-desist letter.
I do not consider an apostrophe a number or a sign. I am unable to record my leave application in my work system and cannot register for mandatory courses. I have had to use an alias, without an apostrophe, for such basic functions. [Link]
