... and all humans?

When I pay a bill on line I have to enter my account number. The invoice I received shows this account number in a 4pt font as:
10000000002987421000331 or something ridiculously long with no breaks and an indeterminate number of zeros stuck in just for funsies.

Sometimes there are alpha characters that include the letters "I" and "O" to guarantee I can't get it right on the first try.

For the love of Dog, and my failing eye sight, could you please break this up into 3 or 4 character sequences, and drop all the 0s out? And if you allow "I" and "O" into the mix, could you please find some other form of work where your clients enjoy being tortured?

Oh, and stop using 4pt fonts, too.

As I struggle to enter my account number I assuage my frustration by imagining which of the circles Dante would put you in.
