php super globals

So i $_REQUESTS holds all get post and cookies, why would you ever need to use $_GET, $_POST, or $_COOKIE.  The only reason i can think of is that if their is a $_POST['name'], and $_COOKIE['name']  or maybe im just confused.

Well, that alone is a good reason.

From a security point of view, I wouldn't like users to mimic a form-submission by using URL parameters ($_GET).  In other words, when checking a username/password, for example, I would like to make sure that they are coming from a form (POST), and not being "hard-coded" into the URL (GET).
