in thread POST vs GET & their intermingling.
In addition, some (goofy) proxy servers periodically re-fetch pages retrieved via GET to keep their cache up to date I guess. As Ovid says, GET should be used when you're just fetching information, and it doesn't matter how many times that data is fetched. POST should be used whenever you want to activate an action or change data, anything that should only be done once and with the explicit activation by a browser.
