This has nothing to do with the syntax specified in RFC 821.

I always find it amusing when people (1) write buggy code, (2) copy the
code somewhere else, introducing more bugs in the process, (3) fix one
of the bugs in the original code, and (4) fail to fix the corresponding
bugs in the copy. Ever heard of code reuse?
