Why is the Instructables Editor eating my plus signs? Answered

The instructables editor keeps eating my plus signs.  Example:  What is the sum of the first four natural numbers?

1+2+3+4 = 10

Oh? So I guess it works on this editor, but not the editor I'm using to post replies to the Answers forum.  I am telling you, that thing devoured my plus signs!  The previewed text, and posted text, wound up looking like:

1 2 3 4 = 10

I even tried whatyoucallit,  ampersand-escaping the plus sign, using its special secret name of ampersand-pound-4-3-semicolon + and actually that worked... but this kind of seems like a convoluted way to write 2+2.

OK. So it is working here,now, but I swear, previously, that damn editor was eating plus signs!
