We are in 2011 soon 2012, it is sad that these things happen in this day and age.

There is no reason why they should be writing their own parsers, when the language of their choice already has a parser that conforms to the RFCs. Reusing code will save them much more time, than reinventing the wheel.

@Phil Thane, no such thing as an accurate address list, addresses can be created at the whim of the end user at anytime. But I have had the same problems are you many times. I can't count the number of times I've had to tell a form I live in "London, London" (no such place exists, London is enough) or with my current address, which the post office insists is "Flats 3-10", when I infact live at "Flat 4", causes choas with deliveries from pizza's, through Tesco, the post office and DHL.

Today I had an online order declined because I didn't pick a county from the list. My county isn't in the list, nor the one that it replaced in 1996 but which is still often found on picking lists.

I've also had US sites refuse my contact for not picking a 'state', and not having an 'I'm not in the US' option.

Moral, don't use out of date lists. Or any lists unless you are 100% sure they are accurate.
