How to Post URL

Just wondering if anyone might be able to help me with a quick HTML question. I have an HTML form and in it I have a field for user submission. When the user clicks "Submit", I'd like to post not only the user field but ALSO the URL of the page containing the form.

The idea is to send users a link such as "http://www.mydomain.com#userID" specific to each user. I'd like to post this URL with the form that they submit so I know who posted what.

Any help would be extremely appreciated!

Can't you just require that they post their e-mail address or name as part of the form so you know?

No -- to make it easier on the user, I just want one field. Does anyone know how to do it?

Every form is submitted that way using "action=" and "type". Look them up in the standard under forms and input.
