I think wherever possible we should go with what the operator says he
sent. In this case, he sent "geo" not "george." Where I would argue for
being more tolerant is where someone sent "013" for the serial number and
someone wrote "13." Does that make me a hypocrite?

On the other hand, since this is the first time out, maybe we should be
uber tolerant. Wadda ya think?
