Does anyone else find that the PM system does not recognise the & symbol, and deletes that and any text following it?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Huzzah. But I prefer to type out my 'and's anyway.

I do normally, however sometimes I use & and as it deletes messages its rather annoying!

I have only noticed that while posting youtube links. I'm not sure if all links do it though.

I haven't noticed any discrimination on the matter.

& doesn't work in PMs, although + does. It's most annoying when trying to write out Mr. Game & Watch. Mr. Game and Watch doesn't look nearly as cool.

+ does not work in PMs in my experience. My repeated experience what with all the D&D modifiers.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

+ doesn't work for me.

I always use &ct. for et cetera. I've had more than a few messages deleted because I forgot about the & and DDO. No problems with the + though, as far as I have seen.

God obviously does not like the & symbol.

Or it's a site flaw.
