Can't get my form to work this time... Pls help?

Having a problem getting my form to work.
It is at:
http://www.hoppernet.info/ynot/talk.php
I've posted other forms that work ok but this one is giving me fits!

Try leaving a required field blank and click ‘Send’.
You get a remark from formmailer but none from this JS.

From the formmailer script:

// General Variables
$check_referrer="no";
$referring_domains="http://hoppernet.info/,http://www.hoppernet.info/";
// options to use if hidden field "config" has a value of 0
// recipient info
$charset[0]="UTF-8";
$tomail[0]="dan@hoppernet.org";
$cc_tomail[0]="";
$bcc_tomail[0]="";
// Mail contents config
$subject[0]="Note from hoppernet_info web site ".date("dMY-Hi");
$reply_to_field[0]="email";
$reply_to_name[0]="name";
$required_fields[0]="topic,name,email,comment,captcha_entry";
$required_email_fields[0]="email";
$attachment_fields[0]="";
$return_ip[0]="yes";
$mail_intro[0]="";
$mail_fields[0]="topic,name,email,comment";
$mail_type[0]="text";
$mail_priority[0]="2";
$allow_html[0]="no";
// Send back to sender config
$send_copy[0]="";
$copy_format[0]="";
$copy_fields[0]="";
$copy_attachment_fields[0]="";
$copy_subject[0]="";
$copy_intro[0]="";
$copy_from[0]="";
$copy_tomail_field[0]="";
// Result options

$thanks_page[0]="";
// Default Error and Success Page Variables
$error_page_title[0]="";
$error_page_text[0]="";
$thanks_page_title[0]="";
$thanks_page_text[0]="";
// Antispam Options
$empty_field[0]="email_address";
$character_scan[0]="comments,name,topic";
$time_delay[0]="10";
$captcha_codes[0]="blue,down,dogs,20,blue,hopper,friends,wife";
$max_urls[0]="2";
$max_url_fields[0]="comment";
$flag_spam[0]="";

PROBLEM #1: The PHP formmailer is NOT set to check errors-but it DOES.

........................................
From the web page:

Function ValidateForm(inputform)
{
{if(inputform.name.value== "")
{alert("Please enter your name now.");
inputform.name.focus();
return false;}
else
{if(inputform.comment.value== "")
{alert("Please enter your comments now.");
inputform.comment.focus();
return false;}
else
{if(inputform.name.topic== "")
{alert("Please enter the SUBJECT you want to tell us about.");
inputform.topic.focus();
return false;}
else
{if(inputform.email.value== "")
{alert("Please enter your email address so we can reply to your note.");
inputform.email.focus();
return false;}
else
{return true;}
}

It's good to hear from friends...

PROBLEM #2: Does not appear to function-at all.

Problem #1 - the required

Problem #1 - the required field value IS setting it to check fields, so it's working perfectly.

Problem #2 - As I see it, your JavaScript is invalid...the { before all the if statements is likely breaking it.
