Try taking the download link and retrieving it with wget or lynx -source or just plain GET if you have it on your system. It gets you a completely different thing to what you would expect based on experiences with a mainstream visual user agent (browser).
I don't know what you get, but i get exactly what i expect, and exactly what i'm getting when sniffing the traffic in firefox (the only exception being the lack of an X-Pad header which has nothing to do with PerlMonks doing any browser detection).
Perhaps instead of making vague claims that PM is doing bad things and saying "see for yourself" you could be a bit more explicit and say "this is what i see ... and i think it's bad."
