Currently on SO there are 2 identical pairs of 2 identical tags:
POST is one of the HTTP protocol methods;
POST is one of the HTTP protocol methods
Please merge and synonymize
Same for get (4,720):
HTTP GET is a request method
and http-get (456):
GET is one of many request methods supported by the HTTP protocol.
http-* is more readable thus should be a master tag.

Hold your fire!
get needs to be tidied by hand, as it currently contains many questions about get() methods which have nothing to do with HTTP. I know the tag wiki says otherwise, but reality is thus.
If it could somehow be locked to prevent new questions leaking in while old questions were tidied up, that would be good, but I don't think that functionality exists.
You're probably safe to go ahead with post (despite the odd mistagged question).
