|| does not form a list of operands to pass to another operator. There's isn't such an operator in Perl5 (but I bet there is in Perl6). Of its two operands, it returns the first one that is true.

What you want is

if ( $FORM{'Comments'} =~ m/http|html|a href/i || $FORM{'addr'} =~ m/http|html|a href/i || $FORM{'name'} =~ m/http|html|a href/i )

You can remove the redundancy with a loop

for (@FORM{qw( Comments addr name )}) { if (m/http|html|a href/i) { html_message(); last; } )

Is there a reason you didn't apply my suggestion to change
/http|html|HTML|A HREF|a href/i
to the simpler and equivalent
/http|html|a href/i
That's what the "i" does.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
