@fribbledom This is one of the most frustrating things... valid email addresses are complicated to parse for, but there are recipes already solving the problem. Maybe you miss weird edge cases, but + is a super common character and important to a lot of people's workflow. (Specifically, to create unique email addresses for tracking who is giving out your email to third-parties.)
