I didn't try a drop down list, *but* to say that spiders don't do submit forms is a bit simplistic.

There are many spiders set to specifically follow forms, bypass entrance blocks, and all sorts of other things. They are usually malicious, and there is no way to really block them.

The *only* so far successful way is to use an embedded graphic "key" in a mixed font face that the user has to type in to get the form to submit. If you are a "hot" site, there are ways to analyze the graphic, and even bypass that if you don't change your HTML often enough.

But, asking the user to make a selection, then fill in something, should block *most* spiders on most sites.

I think picking from a drop down list, and re-entering the Link ID should be sufficient. When I release the widgets kit, the badlink reporting will be a part of the updated scripts.
