+- instead of an AC symbol is not funny. It's stupidity.

I think you are not understanding the meaning of +/-. In the Netherlands and probably some other european countries this means "give or take" / approximatly it does not mean AC!!!

I like to think I have a firm grasp on English but obviously I am not a native speaker so these things tend to happen... Ah well learned something today

Yes,
+- can be used as a tolerance.
+- can be used as a dual polarity.
+- must not be used instead of an AC symbol.

In English ~ means either AC or 'approximately equal to', or 'around'. We might use +- for the latter two meanings, but never for AC. There is also the combined plus minus symbol, but I don't have that on my keyboard and I am too lazy to look up its character code.

It is quite the same in German: means simply plus or minus (tolerance or polarity), whereas ~ means approximately (and ofcourse AC).
