"the string obtained by removing the - from uid-vanity"

Credit

On Leslie Lamport's page about TLA I noticed this strange message at the bottom of the page:

This page can be found by searching the Web for the 21-letter string uid\lamporttlahomepage. Please do not put this string in any document that could wind up on the web--including email messages and Postscript and Word documents. You can refer to it in Web documents as "the string obtained by removing the - from uid-lamporttlahomepage".

PS: He is the guy behind LaTeX and some fine synchronization algorithms in distributed systems.

Copy

I immediately added my own UID: "uidjeanhuguesrobert, the string obtained by removing the - from uid-jeanhuguesrobert".

Because of the similarity with VanitySearch/es in the way of looking up for the page, I named Vanity UID this type of UIDs, or uidvanity (being slightly recursive).
