I've never submitted a pr, but I've written scripts for bulk web submissions
(GET and POST for load testing web apps).   Did the previous web pr-interface
have any sort of verification process? (e.g. email to submitter)  Were there any
sanity checks?  (e.g. no more than X pr's per Y time)

Where would I look to find the *old* web pr interface?
