Python Django Forms Forms Create a Validator

Don't know why I get error here says "make sure the validator does not allow @teamtreehouse.com email addresses."


from django import forms

def not_treehouse(value):
    if value.lower().endswith('@teamtreehouse.com'):
        raise forms.ValidationError('Just come talk to me')

class LeadShareForm(forms.Form):
    email = forms.EmailField()
    link = forms.URLField()
    honeypot = forms.CharField(widget=forms.HiddenInput, 

    def clean_honeypot(self):
        honey = self.cleaned_data['honeypot']
        if len(honey):
            raise forms.ValidationError('Bad robot!')
        return honey

You are very close! You have to add the validator to the email field. Currently is has been added to the honeypot field.

Post back if you need more help. Good Luck!!
