Browsers don't read unsolicited web sites.  Email readers do, however,
read unsolicited email, and email from downright hostile correspondents.  
And I consider "web bugs" and similar tracking methods to be a danger
for something that's supposed to be ONLY "formatted text".

So where does the submitted data GO?  And there's all kind of information
in there about what software I'm running.
