    Re: guestbook help (noob)

    Well, I'm not a Perl programmer, but I can still follow what you've done pretty well. The main things are to make sure your variables are coming in through your form and not a query string, and to validate that those variables are of a format that you are expecting. You have both those bases covered from the looks of it, so I would say this is probably fairly secure.
