STUPID STUPID STUPID MySpace

I spent like two hours earlier today on MySpace figuring out all the CSS classes/ids and what-not to make a very nice looking yet simplistic profile, and they won't let me. For whatever reason they're filtering out all pound signs (#) in the code, so now my code looks convoluted. Because they don't provide the necessary hooks to style the page correctly (using simple CSS like .darkbackground or .header), I can't do SQUAT. I can paint the entire thing one color, I can put a picture in the background, and yet I can't change the default colors for specific items. I just want to strangle them after wasting all that time only to find out they won't let you do squat. They provide just enough enough CSS hooks to do what you're not supposed to do, but not the ones that let you do what you want.

Edit: This is what my profile would have looked like (with commentary).
