Dashism!

In addition, I think that tags should not be case-sensitive, like they are now. Thanks, Alex. Love you <3

It may just be that the Tag Function still uses the old ASCII Code for the Dash.

The Possible Codes are:
%45
~2D
055
&#45;
0x2d

I've tried tagging you with ~2D & 0x2d so far...

Edit: Nothing. If it was ascII, wouldn't we expect the same problems for the underscore, which works perfectly?

Yeah, I would think so. Truly a strange bug.

Yeah, it's really strange! It seems like the system is treating a dash and not an underscore, like a space.

FYI, I used a RegEx to do the matching, so it's only looking for @ plus string of alpha-numeric chars. Just need to add "dash" in as a valid matching character.

Oh, simpler than imagined!
