I have a standard form built with rails, which a user to my site can
to submit data. Unfortunately one user just managed to submit exactly
the the same data three times in a row.
From the server logs it seems as though he didn't use his back button
and then resubmit everything. It looks more like he got a bit fed up
waiting for the form to process and pressed the submit button three
if the back action just fetched the page from the browser's local
cache you wouldn't be able to tell.
However, I didn't think this was possible in Rails. Is this correct?
Nothing particular in rails to stop this (or rather it is a client
side problem really - rails just sees 3 inbound requests)
