Another respondant has quoted from the spec, which says the user should
confirm the repost.  For instance, if I set up a form on my home page that
asked for your name and address, and redirected your post to, say, a
Penthouse magazine form for a "bill me later" subscription (if one does
exist or is ever installed), you might be unhappy with the automatic
reposting of your personal information.
