I've actually used $_GET in the way I described because then it doesn't require 
submitting a form to be able to delete something from a list.

with $_POST you would have to submit the form, so you would need to build an 
array of check boxes to store what ones you want to delete, and then go through 
and process the array to remove all the proper items.

But with the $_GET you can process it one at a time. I had a system up and 
working for maintaining a address database for quite awhile and it worked great 
for me.
