Preventing changes on theby DaWolf (Curate)

DaWolf has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Greetings, fellow monks.
Let's say I have a script that's accessed by the following URL:
My main concern is that any user can simply change let's say "user=foolish" to "user=smartone" and just hit the enter key and the script will accept this user as if he is someone else.
I could solve this by making HTTP_REFERER checks, but since some scripts on the system can be accessed from multiple pages, it would be a royal pain in the a**...
Is there anyway to prevent the script from reloading itself without some form input?
Thanks in advance, my friends.
