Anyone who has ever written a CGI script understand the notion of an
application that can understand the intent of form parameters in the body of
an HTTP POST message. There is a protocol, there, whether or not it has been
standardized, and regardless of the fact that the HTTP server only
understands one intent -- the POST action.
How do you explain that a transaction some how magically occurs even though
the only intent of the message is a POST? Come on, now. This is such a
ludicrous argument I see no point in continuing it.
