Shouldn't that be

$FORM{'subject'} =~ s/[^A-Za-z0-9\.]//g;

Doesn't a "." without an escaping \ match *any* character? If so, that 
would throw away *anything* in the incoming string! :)

And now that I'm looking at it more, doesn't that regex actually 
change the characters he wants to keep, and leave all the 
undesirables in the string??

Maybe I need more coffee this morning...
