Yes we are and thats why I probably mistook the effect of it doing that 
as a side effect instead of a designed in feature... now that being said 
we have used that content day since the first few lines of our code was 
written and until this post (about 2 years) the servlet getting 
getParameter via GET *AND* POST was not an issue... but for some reason 
a new client side request format (which there is no easy way around not 
using) messed it up.
