in thread Email::Valid rejecting emails @example.com today

I personally wrote the patch that caused example.com to be invalid in accordance with the RFCs

Hi,

Hmm, which rfc are you reading? I see what you did, it goeas against rfc6761.

- treat restricted/reserved TLDs (invalid, test, example, loca +lhost) as invalid (thanks, Steve Bertrand!) # Purpose: Check whether a top level domain is valid for a domain. sub tld { my $self = shift; my %args = $self->_rearrange([qw( address )], \@_); unless (eval {require Net::Domain::TLD; Net::Domain::TLD->VERSION(1. +65); 1}) { die "Net::Domain::TLD not available"; } my $host = $self->_host( $args{address} or return $self->details('tl +d') ); my ($tld) = $host =~ m#\.(\w+)$#; my %invalid_tlds = map { $_ => 1 } qw(invalid test example localhost +); return defined $invalid_tlds{$tld} ? 0 : Net::Domain::TLD::tld_exist +s($tld); }

Did you goof? https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6761 says

2. Application software SHOULD NOT recognize example names as special and SHOULD use example names as they would other domain names.

    example.com is a second level domain, not a top level domain.
    The function you quoted deals with TLD, as in not.existing.example

    example.com seems to be treated as any other domain, which is by looking it up in DNS - which fails if there's no corresponding record

    I must have misunderstood.

      Maybe so , happens to everybody .... but does that help users of Email::Valid or not ?
