Whenever I try to change my MSN display name, it instantly changes back. I’ve tried different computers, different operation systems and different IM applications to no avail.
* Has been going on for months, so waiting it out is hardly an option.
* Windows Live Messenger can keep the name changed for the session’s duration. Reverts when logging in again.
* Unlike some (related?) Google cases, it doesn’t display my email address. It’s a previous display name that’s set in stone.
