      You can easily create a view or a collection with a double dot in the name, then it's impossible to delete it.

      I've accidentally named a view : "test...view". When I try to delete it now I get the following error : MongoInvalidArgumentError: Collection names cannot be empty

      I tried running the following command : db.getCollection("test..view").drop()

      I also tried to rename it but got the same error.

      But the error is still there.
