If you want to be a HTTP-abuser (see  in ) I recommend POST.
It's as good as BREW  or INVOKE or anything else closely related.
GET means GET because common, widely deployed and highly tuned
elements of the Internet infrastructure use caches that try to
optimize GETs. Even though thousands of individuals each, in
their corner of the net, can get client-server applications to work
nicely using GET to cause their coffee pots to perk, if you
try to deploy it out in the wide world, it won't work.
"Running code" is necessary but not sufficient.
