I went ahead and used your solution! Downside of agile teams – time is at a premium and you dont get to experiment much, sadly. :(

comment sshd_config for denying login attempts but with an exception
@MariusMatutiae: Yes, absence of parantheses and OR operator is a hindrance. But the workaround would be to have multiple DenyUsers lines. At the moment, I am going to launch a second sshd instance, and try the pattern I have put up in my original question..

comment sshd_config for denying login attempts but with an exception
@NDGeek: My concern was more about SSHD not coming up at all (no sshd process) because of bad config file; not much about losing user level access. Thanks qasdfdsaq: running a second copy of sshd is a good suggestion!

@MariusMatutiae: Haha, I had actually thought of this– as my last resort :). But I believe there's some way of making use of patterns combinations ( ! for negation of pattern and , for logical AND; linked in the question) for this purpose.

comment Automate web login for Wi-Fi hotspots
@EM I had a similar problem. I was "OK" with logging on to their network through a WebUI, but their WebUI made my eyes bleed. So I made a quick and dirty script to automate login process.. Essentially, whatever your browser does, you should be able to imitate it. Maintain a session (a cookie jar?), fire the exact same HTTP requests, and you should be fine.
