Encoding POST request body
Today I learned, that passing unencoded text into the body of a POST request is a bad idea. It could result in security issues and therefore always should be encoded.
One approach to resolve this is using
URLSearchParams. You can learn more about the API on mdn: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/URLSearchParams
