POST requests are actually GETs

This is an old post from 2007. As such, it might not be relevant anymore.

I found out a pretty interesting, and slightly strange, feature of the HTTP protocol today. When submitting a form as a POST request, if you set the action to the targeted files folder name without the trailing slash it submits the form as a GET request—this caused me to scratch my head over a script for a couple minutes.

Try it for yourself.
