Request("contro lname") can use for both GET and POST protocol??

If we use GET protocol, we can use either Request("contro lname") or
Request.QuerySt ring("controlna me") to get the data entered by the user. But
if we use POST protocol, we MUST use Request("contro lname"), and
Request.QuerySt ring("controlna me") won't work. I think
Request("contro lname") means Request.Form("c ontrolname"), which is used for
POST protocol. But seems like it works for GET protocol too.

Here's the code I tested.

<%
If (Request("submi tgetbtn") = "GET Submit") Then
Response.Write( Request("fname" ))
End If

If (Request.QueryS tring("submitpo stbtn") = "POST Submit") Then
Response.Write( Request("lname" ))
End If

%>
<form action="getpost test.asp" method="get">
<input type="text" name="fname">
<input type="submit" name="submitget btn" value="GET Submit">
</form>

<form action="getpost test.asp" method="post">
<input type="text" name="lname">
<input type="submit" name="submitpos tbtn" value="POST Submit">
</form>

Please advise! Thanks!
