It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

I could make a web based game, and feed all my graphs to the visitors.
SE is a big game, isn't it? :D – Szabolcs

@YiWang I agree that the way this is handled makes it seem like a bug. If the system was specifically designed with this limitation in mind I imagine that a different error message would be used.

@Allan Note that I have converted your post into a comment (like this one). This is the appropriate place for such notes. I realize that as a new member you can only comment on your own questions but if you begin to participate in asking and/or answering questions that will quickly change.

kguler, while it does copy and paste correctly the \[Transpose] unicode symbol uses a private glyph (as I recall) therefore it will not appear correct in (most?) web browsers. This may not matter to you in this particular case but in general it should not be used. @belisarius All joking aside I really don't try to write opaque code. :-p

Indeed you do. Probably not as general as would be best, but then again neither are several other answers, and the OP never really specified the problem. +1
