in thread Errors in my (simple?) CGI Script!

Personally I don't use taint. Whenever I do anything that could touch the outside I treat it like a bomb. (With great care.) But for someone less familiar with the dangers, It can't hurt. Though it might not help either unless they understand why they are doing and what is dangerous.
