I sold a domain to probri19, and he entered an extra character in the address textbox. It has come to me that there's no address validation an I'm always getting messaging regarding this. People make mistakes, and we're only human, such a simple function to implement into the QT will help hundreds and even thousands.

Link to rant: http://pastebin.com/ew1JG1h3

Code:
[04:01] <thrasher>  WalletModel::SendCoinsReturn sendstatus = model->sendCoins(recipients);
[04:01] <thrasher>     switch(sendstatus.status)
[04:01] <thrasher>     {
[04:01] <thrasher>     case WalletModel::InvalidAddress:
[04:01] <thrasher>         QMessageBox::warning(this, tr("Send Coins"),
[04:01] <thrasher>             tr("The recepient address is not valid, please recheck."),
[04:01] <thrasher>             QMessageBox::Ok, QMessageBox::Ok);
[04:01] <thrasher>         break;

WHY IS THIS NOT WORKING?!?!?!?!

WUT?
Bitcoin-qt doesn't let you send to invalid addresses and AFAIK never did. The last chars of every address are a verification checksum.

If litecoin-qt allows it, then litecoin-qt is broken

Now an advice: Spread FUD only about your scamcoin and leave Bitcoin out of it, kthxbay?

Nice to see you're still saying in the OP that Bitcoin-qt has the same problem as Litecoin-qt when it clearly isn't true.
FUDster...
