I have a few of these in my interchange error log: - - [24/May/2007:06:02:55 -0400] basketball

So, it looks like someone is trying to spam by posting to my
ord/basket.html page.

I'm only seeing this in one of my catalogs, so I'm hoping that it is
someone (or some script) that thinks my shopping cart is some kind of
formmail script.  Does anyone have any tips on how to check if any of
these attempts have been successful?

I have seen the errors on two separate days - they appear to be coming
from a bunch of different ips all grouped within about a 30 minute
time frame.
