    If you're using Windows XP go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map and pick out some characters. Use the select and copy buttons on the Character Map program to choose and copy the characters you want.

    Oh, that's not something you do when you create your username. The strikeout through someone's username indicates they are no longer a member, either because they were banned or they asked to terminate their membership.

    So you probably DO NOT want the bar.
