Unless latency is a big issue, if it's large so be it, use innxmit. 
Pushing any large number of posts through POST is going to take more 
server resources than doing it as a peer. And whoever operates the 
server may well resent it if you POST tens of thousands of times a day.

Just my take, and I have my post filter set to limit the number of 
streams and get seriously slow if you post a lot.
