WordPress advertises "Full web standards compliance" as one of its 
features <http://wordpress.org/>. But if WordPress has problems with 
Google Web Accelerator, it is because WordPress is not in compliance 
with the HTTP 1.1 standard 

(In particular, WordPress is non-compliant for allowing GET requests to 
delete posts, comments, or pages, to select themes, or to activate 

Either WordPress should be brought into compliance, or the "Full 
standards compliance" bullet point should be removed. Blocking Google 
Web Accelerator to get around non-compliance with HTTP 1.1 would make as 
much sense as blocking validator.w3.org referrers to get around 
non-compliance with XHTML 1.0.
