No, the POST data should be sent again, when someone uses the rleload function. But it should be GET for normal links.

A elements should never, of course, send POST requests. However, if you try to return to a POST result in the history, especially if expired, most browsers will ask you if you really mean it, because POST is not required to be idempotent, so re-POSTing might cause you to pay money multiple times.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
