Agree - fix the '+' problem first

Came here to post the exact same comment - drives me mad when websites refuse to allow the plus sign in an email address. What's worse than that though is when they either:

a) Accept it, but just strip it out so you don't actually get the emails

b) Accept it, send you emails, all well and good until you go to unsubscribe and find that their unsubscribe page requires you to enter the email address you signed up with and on THAT PAGE they don't allow the '+' sign so you can't unsubscribe...

Aaaarrrgghh.....
