    I noticed I sometimes get a gzip encoded response. I am sending the Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate header every time. It seems to give me a gzipped response when I send the Accept: text/html header, but not with other accept headers such as Accept: application/json. What is the proper way I should call it? I was passing through the accept header since the documentation says send all the headers, but I am planning on just passing my own accept headers since passing these through is probably not the best idea. Any suggestions or recommendations regarding the gzip?

    Hi,
    The Accept and Accept-Encoding are not important headers used for the match, so you can quite happily change those without affecting the match. With that in mind I would suggest continuing to use Accept: text/html , and I will look into why text/json causes a problem.
    Another note, this may solve the problem in your other post about returning xml, if you were previously sending different Accept headers depending on the match.
    Ben.
