The general rule of thumb is to use $_POST if the page is going to  
modify data, and $_GET if nothing will be modified.   Since $_REQUEST  
contains both $_GET and $_POST, it can be used in place of $_GET when  
you don't care about how the parameters are passed - but $_POST  
should still be used if data is going to be modified.

Hope this helps.
