what do you do in this case?

Assume you have a list of users, and you have a button labeled ‘Edit’. The action associated with the ‘Edit’ button would be to ‘show’ the selected user from the list, as in /users/show/1. The user’s data would be displayed in an editable form and would have a post action of ‘update’, as in /users/update/1. We typically follow this method to be RESTful in our approach to development of these type controller / model interactions.
