So one guy say: "I want a website and the domain and url should never change."
The webdeveloper say: "Sure ? Okey - no problem".

Now what the webdeveloper has some options. First option is to make the site normal and put the in to an iframe, second option is to make a ajax app (for example with Google Webtoolkit) and the third option and maybe the worst idea ever is to make for every link javascript event that execute a hidden form to the main site.
*So why this is this evil.*

  1. The backbutton doesn't work and refreshing the sites sucks.
  2. Development sucked because of cached data in every browser
  3. You break the HTTP Protokoll: Get for getting Data, Post for send data, Put for ...
  4. Users can't share links.
  5. Google's pagerank might not work
Maybe you think different about this. My opinion is *Extensive use of post request are evil*
