Note the "something like it". I didn't write his app, just provided a
starting point.

Blah blah blah.
I've used this code for about 6 years now and have yet to find emails that
it didn't work for. If someone has some funky (whacky) RFC extremity, then
so be it. That's their problem. Most people have NORMAL emails that follow
the above.

But you are correct, I have revised it to be a little more forgiving of some
allowed characters...

What about them? It's going to depend on how/where you use this. In my case,
2 and 3 letter domains are all I encounter. It's trivial to make it {2,6} if
you really are going to encounter a .museum domain. DOUBTFUL, but sure, I'll
concede the three extra letters. ;-)

However, you point out a few edge cases and so I optimized mine and now use
this one:

Noted. Thanks for the optimization.
