I may be misunderstanding what you're suggesting here, but it seems you're proposing to have ->get['key'] only return null|string, getting rid of the arrays of parameter values ( ?key[]=value1&key[]=value2 ) functionality here. (And I assume you intend the same for ->post['key'] ) If so, I would say this is a bad idea. I and a lot of other devs use this functionality frequently (more often in POST, but often enough in GET for purposes such as search pages). And how would multiple select inputs be handled? AllenJB
