The "official" word in this regard comes from the CGI spec:

There you will find that CGI data can come from two places.  If you really
POST, then it comes in stdin.  If you GET the cgi script, then it comes in
the QUERY_STRING.  My suspicion is that your are using method="get" in your
form.  Try changing it to method="post".
