Hmmm ... not too sure bout that ... Someone could pretty
easily write their own <FORM> to finger anyone else ...
all they'd have to do is stick another name in the hidden
field. Prolly a better idea to execute the finger command
from within the actual script .. from there you can make sure
that _you_ are the only one that it can finger.

Yeah ... u got it the wrong way around :) .. GET method attaches a
QUERY_STRING to the URL which your CGI script
can grab from the environment. The usual scenario for the
POST method is to send an e-mail to your script, (or upload
a file to it) with the FORM data in it.
