Subject Re: POST without any content - sometimes
Date Sat, 16 Feb 2002 09:43:01 GMT
I don't think it's the users browser since I got one POST with referer and one
POST without  with only three seconds between. The user runs vanilla Win XP
with MS IE5.5. I think there is a Norton Personal firewall in between, maybe
there's the problem?

Maybe the best thing to do is to make the script accept POSTs without referer
and forget tho whole thing?
On the other hand I'm a curious person :-)
