Re: New ZD Net Poll
Last time I tried to vote at ZDNN, the message "Badly formed address" flashed
on my screen, and the kind of confirmation usually displayed after a
successful form submission did not appear. So this time I turned on Trace....
I activate the link to submit my vote. Lynx sends all the usual information,
including my name and e-mail address and --
User-Agent: Lynx 2.5 libwww-FM/2.14
Then strange things start to happen (I've removed a few display control codes
for readability here):
HTTP: Rx: HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
HTTP: Scanned 2 fields from line_buffer
--- Talking HTTP1.
[HTLoadHTTP] Got Redirect code
[HTLoadHTTP] Picked up location 'question.html?pollid=207&action=a'
HTAccess: 'http://cgi.zdnet.com/zdpoll/savevote.html' is a redirection URL.
HTAccess: Redirecting to 'question.html?pollid=207&action=a'
LYGetFile: getting question.html?pollid=207&action=a
Badly formed address question.html?pollid=207&action=a
...and I find myself back where I started.
