Bill de hÓra: "Just" use POST

Updated . Posted . Visible to the public.

PUT means update the resource with this entity, which tends means "overwrite". Now think for a moment about how that works for things like tags in a blog post - if I leave the tag out, am I saying remove it? Ignore it? Do I have to echo back all the data so it doesn't get scrubbed?
