I _might_ have an application case for when that is not good:
think of phpBB web fora, where you can submit some content, and then
get a message that you must wait X seconds before submitting again
(as a rate limiter), where you can just press ^R to do that.

How about looking at the origin of the link? If it’s from an <a> tag,
use GET unconditionally. That seems to be the most natural solution
to me. If that’s possible from the code, that is.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
