One should at least consider the following statement from 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP#Safe_methods :

Some methods (for example, HEAD, GET, OPTIONS and TRACE) are defined as 
safe, which means they are intended only for information retrieval and 
should not change the state of the server. In other words, they should 
not have side effects, beyond relatively harmless effects such as 
logging, caching, the serving of banner advertisements or incrementing a 
web counter. Making arbitrary GET requests without regard to the context 
of the application's state should therefore be considered safe.
