there is no difference between post and get vars in zope for the
developers site of views. get() is a method of request (or dictionaries)
to fetch a named value (with the option to also get an default back just
in case the variable is not there). long story short: request holds all
the variables from post/get/cookies/... - if you want to work only with
submited form data use request.form.

for the philosophickal approach GET vs POST - use POST for <form> - and
you use by default GET on things like anchors, ... - your application
usually wont notice the difference and there are some limitations to get
(no file-upload possible, length or url and thus amount of params, ...)
