The debate on client-side vs. server-side form validation is
ongoing. Client-side is more responsive, and attempts to keep bad

one can't always rely on it to do form validation. So server-side
validation is needed as well to allow your full application to
client's side. Coding defensively helps!
It's not a debate.
You can provide progressive enhancement to your form to help your
users *IF* you want.
You should *always* validate all the information coming from the outside world.
The question of *if* you want to do both is your choice without any
debate. Those are only choices that you can elect to follow or not.
