[UPHPU] receiving with $_REQUEST

It's obviously wise to only post a form using GET when you absolutely  
need to or there are no security concerns involved, but what about on  
the receiving end? Are there any reasons to not always receive with  
$_REQUEST? I have heard people say that you should only use $_REQUEST  
when you absolutely need to receive from both GET and POST, but if a  
hacker can simulate a POST just as easy as GET then how is it insecure?
