Description

Categories with duplicate names, but + and - in them are not allowed.

Example:
I would like to create the categories A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, etc. However, Wordpress will only allow me to create the initial A, B, C categories. When I go to create A-, B+, B-, C+, etc. I am told that they already exist. Is this just not something that is possible? Thanks!

Plus signs are used in taxonomy intersections, so it makes sense not to allow them in taxonomy slugs.
