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.
