    Poor parsing of email addresses

    I seem to recall that it's *always* been a problem (i.e. since I joined in Jan 2002), and I haven't bothered to report it before, but since it's a recurring annoyance and it most definitely IS a bug, it's probably about time that I reported it and that it was fixed.

    Example:
    http://www.sitepointforums.com/showp...96&postcount=9

    Please employ a more sophisticated RegEx pattern (which only matches valid email addresses), and if RegEx isn't being used *at all* for this task then perhaps it's time you did! lol

    Ta muchly!

    EDIT: Ironically, just typing M@rco didn't result in the mis-parse... Hmmm... So I've posted the post from Goof that prompted me to post here...
