Note: PAUSE has been developed in a time when it was more common than today that people have names consisting of at least a first name and a second name, like Ben Cartwright or Tony Nelson, you get the idea. This field is considered to be filled with both names, separated by a space. This trivial expectation was then coded into the server side sanity check of this form and it turned out to be a super efficient spam protection because bots often did not try to enter a space in the middle of the field. It was about the year 2003 when people started to complain that they had tried Peter and it did not work. Poor Peter, please remember you do have a second name.
