If a form has no ACTION attribute then it submits to itself.

It looks like the site uses jQuery and AJAX to load its data.  Have you tried contacting the authors about how it is built?  I'm not convinced guessing is going to be as fruitful as direct inquiry.

The form on the Contact page uses javascript to check and submit the form.  If you look at "GoEditVaildate()", you can see that.  As Gary said, since there is no 'action' attribute, it will submit to itself.  This site will tell you more about what is used:  http://builtwith.com/recoverymaps.com

Hey, Dave: builtwith.com is pretty cool!  I just tried it on a few sites and it's really got a lot of accuracy.  Glad you shared that.

Just a sidebar note, while the "submit to itself" principle is true as long as only HTML is involved, I believe it's possible for JavaScript to change the contents of the action= attribute.  In the case of recoverymaps, the action= target appears to change to this upon submit (adding the URL parameter):

I think I got http://builtwith.com/ from Gary.  And Gary is right, that is the same URL, they query string doesn't change that.  And they are running '*.html' pages thru the PHP interpreter.
