I always redirect after a POST (if that's what you're talking about)
because then the user can reload the subsequent page as much as they
want without any awkward messages about having to re-enact whatever
action they just took just to get the page reloaded.  I therefore
consider reloading after a form submission to be actually necessary; is
it a bad practice for reasons I've not run into yet?
