Comment 1 mark_sweep 2005-09-18 18:29:44 UTC
I believe those entries may be duplicates or misplaced entries for accounts that
actually start with the string "! !" in place of "Exclamation mark".
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-09-18 21:41:30 UTC
They appear to have double spaces in the names; title normalization will always tuck the two to one, 
so you won't get a match back.
Comment 3 mark_sweep 2005-10-17 18:53:49 UTC
See also [[WP:ANI#Something odd: contributions by non-existent user, database
inconsistency??]] (note: link will disappear when WP:ANI gets archived).
Comment 5 Casey Brown 2007-09-18 01:58:50 UTC
Assuming fixed or obsolete.
Comment 6 Jelte (WebBoy) 2007-09-18 06:05:39 UTC
Not fixed.
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2007-09-18 14:46:58 UTC
Duping to bug 3507 to combine all invalid-usernames issues.
