If you use HTTP GET, you are limited to one line
of characters that get appended to the URL and
therefore must be URL-encoded. The total
length of the request URL has to be <=255 characters.
If you use HTTP POST, the data you send
to the server appears in the body of the request,
does not have to be URL-encoded, and can contain
as many lines as you wish.
