> How does one make a proper _poll_ on the Internet? A first way is to removed duplicate client's IP. That's not enough but it is better than to accept every single request :) You can play with cookies, but this can be by-passed. You can request to download an ActiveX which will read the uniq processor ID, but this is only for Windows platforms. Anyway these are some ideas, I do not know a way to do real/unbiased poll on the Internet. Pascal.
