you have to escape the "." or it will match everything, so it needs to be "\."

I think you also need to allow spaces in your subjects, if you want to keep 
them readable

If you don't mind allowing the underscore you can use "\w" instead of 

so the regex becomes: $FORM{'subject'} =~ s/[^\w\. ]//g;
