ASP.NET is trying to help in making sure the user is not trying to make a
cross site scripting attack no your site. It is checked the first time you
access Request.Form or Request.QueryString collection.

If you insist you can disable it with the validateRequest setting:

If you do this it will be crucial that you validate any input data to
insure the user is not sending you malicious input.
