All websites that attempt to validate my email address (or indeed any hand-typed data) before I have finished typing it, need to die in a fire.
"alan@ is not a valid email address".
I KNOW THIS. LET ME FINISH.

@popey but the JavaScript required to add the extra checks. Lazy developer isn't going to do that.

@popey
I also love how some does not accept unusual tld's

@selea @popey Really it shouldn't even be doing tld checks, just have a RegExp object that tests a string for (\.[a-zA-Z0-9-]+). Example: /^[a-zA-Z0-9.!#$%&’*+/=?^_`{|}~-]+@[a-zA-Z0-9-]+(?:\.[a-zA-Z0-9-]+)*$/
