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:  status=29996
     HTAccess: 'http://cgi.zdnet.com/zdpoll/savevote.html' is a redirection URL.
     HTAccess: Redirecting to 'question.html?pollid=207&action=a'
     Using 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.
  Hmmm. HMMM.
