ISP refusing to serve baked dojo.js and dojo.js.uncompressed.js

My ISP (webhost4life) refuses to serve large dojo.js and dojo.js.uncompressed.js file. It's anti-virus thinks dojo.js is a mass-mailer worm because it contains "getNamespace" string, which apparently is widely identified with worms attacking the outlook.

I realize that this is not your fault, but I might be not the only person who would encounter this problem. It was introduced in svn version 4420, so, currently, only people building freshest dojo would encounter this problem.

Would you be willing to do anything about this (such as rename "getNamespace" to "getNS")?

Adam, I guess this is your domain.

Hmm... I don't have a problem changing this, I guess, but where will this end? Almost any string in Dojo might ultimately find itself in a collision with a virus scanner?

it seems that GetNamespace? is a method on the Outlook Application object. A good enough reason to change it :)

Yep, that's what ISP told me. Their anti-virus thinks dojo is a mass-mailing worm attacking Outlook. I guess MS will start to patent function names soon:)

Method went away in sjmiles' namespace refactor, so hopefully it will no longer be an issue.
