I believe this has to do with the PostableResource not converting GETs to 
POSTs properly. I'm guessing what you did is added your resource and then 
typed in


and got the error message. You resource will no longer show up in the list
of Existing Resources.

Try re-adding your resource and then immediately (ie. before you click on
the link to test out your resource), type in


Where 'whatever' is literally that - any characters. The GET will then be
properly converted to a POST and everything will work wonderfully.	

Does anyone know another way around this?

hope this helps,
