Well, the main "danger" is that you could be directed to a site other than the one you felt safe giving your data too. If you hit a post to Amazon's order form and the last page redirected you to Barnes and Noble's page for the purchase. Worse, if the error document of the site was "tweaked" and the CGI removed you might wind up pouring your data into someone else's logs.

Also, please don't confuse redirect AFTER post with redirecting THE post. You shouldn't be conned into sending data to someone you didn't expect. Where the browser goes after the data is received properly is something else entirely.

Read for yourself: RFC 2616 Sec 10.3.2 and and you might look at most of Sec 15 as well.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
