I've got XMPP set up correctly and verified..except for one channel that has a colon ( ':') in the name-- I get an 'is not a valid room name' error. I did a bunch of google searches to no avail before deciding to ask here.

How do I join a channel called, for example, OMG: WTF in Pidgin?

I know that a space is represented with a +. It's the ':' that makes the room name invalid. Any way to make Pidgin take it as a string instead of..doing whatever it's trying to do with a ':'?
