I am getting it also.

Looking thru my HTML stripper document printout, I see that the ampersand 
"&xxx" represents an "entity reference" in an HTML file.  The example that is 
used is that, "&copy" represents the copyright symbol.

If you are creating your post in HTML and then saving/sending it as 
ASCII text, your conversion routine might be replacing "& " with "+ACY-".
