always_direct allow has a higher priority than never_direct allow.

Default for both is deny.

There is a size limit in Squid for the request size which may impact huge
GET requests such as enormous cookies or a very large form submitted via
GET instead of POST.

For POST data the default is no limit since Squid-2.5 (or maybe even 2.4,
don't remember).

Both can be tuned in squd.conf.

There is no problem blocking POSTS alone by acls. POST is just a method
like any other HTTP method and can be matched by the method acl type.
