Re: check only email domain with api

The database works with full email addresses primarily, but there is also a list of "toxic" domains where any email address will return a "hit" on the API.

If you query the email address, you'll get a hit on the API if the domain is toxic.

If you want to bulk check all domains of users on your site, you can download a toxic domain list from the Resources tab at the top of this site, and then check your data against that.

We need better spam proofing technology - preferably the kind that electrocutes spammers with 50,000 volts 100 amps the moment they click "Post".

Use "" on the web search page, leaving "Exact Match" unchecked. I get 'Found 38 entries for ""' ('' is NOT in that list).

[using '' gives 'Found 0 entries for ""']

I'll add this domain to the toxic domain list.  We have to be careful, and that reflects here as wanting to make as few false positives as possible.  All emails from from domain will show as hits in the next 5 minutes
