Do you have users that name files/folders in sentence format?

We have some users that name folder structure(s) like this:

last name, first name dd.oo.bbbb [folder]

{blah blah} here is a phrase for a folder (more folder name) [sub

file name ~ that is actually longer that what I've typed here

The words are not the same as their actual words in the file/folder
names, but the special chars are in there, and their file/folder names
are longer than what I typed in here.

We've talked to people in this dept before about this, but apparently
it fell on deaf ears. What have you done in dealing with folder
structures like this? Were you able to get the users to cut the names
down? If so, HOW!??!! <G>
