Why does he assume that 404 means there isn't something on the server slurping the submissions...

Absolutely, The server can do whatever it wants with the data and return a 404 header.

Yup, this actually saved me in the past when a statistics logger was returning an internal error (PHP) but Apache was logging the requests, so we could just parse the logs to get the info needed :)

Been there, done that too! Less than 2 weeks ago at that.
