Re: Mailing form
dont take out the ability to email forms back to users! this will
cripple small businesses on the web. my whole business relys on this
to send info back to a variety of email boxes on credit cards,
addresses, order forms!

no matter who did something like the above, it would be the fault of
all who assumed the risk of dealing with a form... either way.
Finding an email address isnt that hard... most web pages have them
on there somewhere as "click here to mail to..."
secondly, it will soon be possible probably to get the email address
of anyone who views your page. or it should
so anyone can email-bomb anyone else regardless.
security obviously deals with credit cards, i am assuming? and, my
previous comments apply. Ok, i see that netscape is trying to boost
their image (now that they've gone public) with all this talk of security, etc....
going along with
all the irrational- but fair in thought- paranoias that the media
has about the net. Fine, but dont act on irrational paranoia.
Theres risk in everything. I will assume much less on the net than
in real life. Bugging phones takes about $3 of radioshack equipt.
Stealing credit card numbers at the place you work takes no money and
little time. The security thing is getting old. Theres as much
security on the web as in real life. guess what... with every
possible security measure on the web.... THERES ONE TO BREAK IT!
period. its all zeros-and-ones!
