Is there anyway to get the + sign out of my Hub address?

      Nope, URL's do not recognize blank spaces so there has to be something there to connect multiple words. Don't worry though because search engines don't really look at the "in between" symbol unless it's a hyphen or underscore and the hyphen is given more relevance.

      If you want, you could type it into a web browser as http://hubpages.com/profile/Pack Secure and it will resolve properly.

      But if you were to type it into a forum post and not wrap it with the URL bbcode tags then it would be http://hubpages.com/profile/Pack Secure and it wouldn't parse properly.

      Another way to do your name is with a %20 in the space so it says http://hubpages.com/profile/Pack%20Secure but it will resolve right.

      Perhaps you should have registered http://hubpages.com/profile/PackSecure

          Most other places put it as Pack_Secure and that works great.

          You've been here 7 days with just 3 hubs, so go and create a new account and then delete the hubs from this account (making sure you have the content) and make them over at the other one.
