    Anyway, you know how you can submit a rating for someone's website in the "How's My Site" forum? Why the hell (excuse my french) is there a submit button on that?

    If I pick a rating, it sends automatically. Why should there be a submit button there as well? I'm just curious. I just find it extremely annoying. My idea is to either get rid of the submit button, or get rid of the auto-send.

    Thanks!

    One of the critical errors in web design is relying on Javascript. Turn it off and 99% of WDF will still work fine.

    I don't rely on javascript. I just don't think you should have that there. By that I mean keep the submit button, and ditch the useless JS.

    Then how, praytell, would the form submit itself without a Submit form element or Javascript actions to the same effect?

    You sir lied to yourself!

    The instantanous Javascript submit + manual optional submit is reasonably common, particurally when it is used across vB pages, so it is staying. Sorry.
