Plus sign in email addresses is often fun

When registering with some sites I add '+${siteName}' between my username and @. This makes for easier classification using Gmail labels. Many sites reject the plus sign, although it's a valid character in email addresses. Morrisons supermarket took it one step further, by letting me register username+morrison@gmail.com, but then refusing to let me log in with it. I gave up on them.
