I'm not a WP-hacker, but I hope my request will fall in good hands.

Since version 2.7, WP uses POST method to request "wp-cron.php? 
check=...". What is the point ?
My antispam filter works by denying POST method to people who fail to  
provide proper credentials. It's implemented on the server side (in  
httpd.conf). Then, the POST method is denied for wordpress or whatever  
process on the server.
I had to edit wp-includes/cron.php to replace wp_remote_post with  
I need to get rid of every POST requests made locally, and replace  
them with GET requests.
