A ticket is a unique, one-off, 15 character string, provided by VWcms, which must be manually copied and pasted by the user. When a VWcms comment or feedback or form element contains a $$TICKET$$ directive VWcms requires the specified ticket somewhere in the comment/feedback/form text or it will be rejected. Once a ticket is issued it remains valid until used (the once) or it expires (one hour). This is a mechanism intended to help defeat spambots.
