RESTFUL routes strange behavior

routes.rb

api.resources :friends, :controller => :friends, :only =>
[:list, :exists], :collection => {:list => :get, :ids => :get, :exists
=> :get}

here is my rake routes.

list_api_friends GET /api/friends/list
{:controller=>"api/friends", :action=>"list"}

formatted_list_api_friends GET /api/friends/
list.:format {:controller=>"api/
friends", :action=>"list"}

this is the only accepted calls for controller => friends action =>
list , so when calling

curl -X POST http://localhost/api/friends/list.xml should return
routing error but instead of that it returns the list as if was a GET
request...

any suggestions

routes.rb

api.resources :friends, :controller => :friends, :only =>

Do you still have the default route at the bottom of routes.rb ?
