Unable to login and post to a site via Curl

P: n/a
There is a social bookmarking site here: http:// onlywire.com that I'm
trying to login and post to via curl.

It's using ajax and I haven't been able to figure out how to post to
it so far.

This is actually the first time I've ever seen a page that I can't
post to with curl.

Anyone have any ideas how to do it?

Use a proxy (or Fiddler/MSIE, LiveHTTPHeader/FireFox) with a normal
browser to check what happens and what is send. If something is send
that's not set by forms/headers, it's probably javascript dependent, and
a bitch to figure out.

Do you have a problem with the normal site if you completely disable
javascript? If you do, then that's the reason, and good luck checking
that script. If not, reexamine the header info, possibly pretend to be a
widely used browser by putting that in the headers etc.
