Invalid address error


#1

After ordering, there was a message in red that said “invalid address” next to my (normal) address. Removing the period from the address prompted a “validating address” message (that never goes away, apparently); on page refresh, the “invalid address” message was gone.

Since when are periods not allowed in addresses?


Ordering Soylent right before the holidays, invalid address

Since some abbreviation may cause poor search results.

Of course FedEx considers the period a “special character.” Why am I surprised?
