No problem...I backed up the data last night so fixing it isn't that hard.
Re: 'Should I...' and 'How to...' submit a script
[In reply to]
My site is down (1dollarhosting has been the target of hacker attacks the last month ergo they go down, I go down). I will make the corrections when it is back up.
Good point about testing for the field delimiter in the data. I will write something that will convert those
As for the live submissions and abuse...I didn't really anticipate that would occur much. I figured that I would trust the community at large to be kind. I also figured that if someone really wanted to abuse the system, they would hit someone bigger (ie: IRS, whitehouse.gov, Microsoft, etc.). The time it would take to "secure" data outwayed the ease of simply repairing the effected database. Ultimately, my log file records everything and I could always start doing domain blocking (worst case; don't want to but could). Good point, nonetheless.
Afterwards, where should I post the script for review? There isn't really a "Check out my script and give advice" forum.
