wow, i really think you're going about this all the wrong way. in your
code, you should check to see if the exact same details have just been
passed from the same IP within a certain time-limit, say half a second.
Now this isn't foolproof, but it's a lot better than using javascript
(which isn't always available remember) solution.

interestingly, this server-side solution also gets around the problem
where information is sent via get. some browsers send it twice in
attempt to download and display the page more quickly (as get behaves
very differently from post data)
