In addition to Godwin's excellent advice, I'd also like to point out
that there's nothing stopping a user from submitting whatever he wants
to your URL, so if he's clever enough to play with CSS, he's probably
also clever enough to figure out what your form params are named. Even
the AJAX approach can easily be triggered by a user's Greasemonkey
script. :)

KISS would seem to apply here.
