Rule n° 23 - The website accepts email aliases containing the + sign.

According to Wikipedia, an e-mail alias or alias e-mail is an e-mail address that redirects to another pre-existing one. Messages sent to the alias are forwarded directly, without going through an e-mail box. This good practice ensures that email addresses of the form name+xxx@domaine.fr are accepted by the site. This allows users to use a dedicated email for a specific purpose without creating an additional email account. It also improves traceability when the address is given to third parties.
