The illegal message is a bit of computer-ese referring to an error.  An "illegal 
operation" is one that is not allowed in the rules and syntax of the computer 
language that is in use when the error occurs.  It refers to the laws of that 
particular computer language only.  Humans are exempt from those laws; we're 
allowed to make errors, being creatures of superior reasoning abilities.  :-)

intelligent the way humans are, although they might put on a pretty good 
imitation from time to time.
