Some email addresses that are obviously wrong, pass the validation with FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL

Reproduce code:
var_dump(filter_var("/", FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL));

Expected result:

Actual result:

I've just looked at what the RFC 2822 allows - and found that the filter actually works fine. That was my mistake to think that slashes are not allowed in the local part of address. Sorry.
