500 Content Disposition Corrupt

So, in future, if you ever get the following error when submitting a form (with enctype=”multipart/form-data”):

500 Content disposition corrupt: Content-Disposition: form-data; name=""

The error is (and this will affect all non-IE browsers) that you have a form element with a blank name attribute, or a non-existent name attribute. So, do the smart thing and don’t typo your forms, and name all your form elements. Or you’ll spend far too long figuring out what’s a really stupid error, like I just did.

  1. I work at the Library in question, and we can find that this site is not being blocked or filtered, nor have we changed our filtering. I am typing this from the public Library computers, and if it was blocked/filtered I would be unable to type this message! Don’t know what the problem with your friend was, but I checked into this site shortly after he was here on 6/2/05, and found no filtering of this site. He’s proceeded to write a letters and post here, but I’m not sure he has grounds to start a wildfire about filtering of this site when it’s NOT filtered!

  3. I work at the Library in question. This site is not being blocked or filtered as quoted by your friend. Nor have we changed the filtering rules. I checked your site via the Library’s public computers on 6/2/05 and again today 6/8/05; and went right into this site. I don’t know what your friend’s problem was, but he’s written letters, demanded rights, and posted here and we still can’t find a filtering problem with this site. Our community as demanded that we use filters and also so has the Government, so don’t know what law he is firestorming about his rights to have filtering turned off. Again, if this site was being filtered, I wouldn’t be able to sent this comment to you using a Public Library computer!

  5. Well, Cecil. I don’t doubt that you are. I also don’t doubt Brahm. He’s actually sent a copy of the message he got at another library down there to me. Perhaps there are stations with extra filtering, perhaps not. Of course, I really don’t care either way. I wouldn’t surprise me if some things on this site do cause it to be filtered by your increasingly paranoid government – I’ve said some fairly unflattering things about them, and I’ve used profanity to boot. For those who can’t take responsibility for their own actions, they might want this site to be filtered. And I while I could see you might interpret Brahm’s actions as “starting a firestorm”, I’m sure he was just trying to be helpful in reminding your institution that adults have the right to request internet access without filters – we all know that some people can become a little over-zealous when interpreting rules.

    De toute façon, I’m glad that you can access this site from your library. Come back whenever you like!
