So how do you meaningfully "check what it is" without actually
requesting the document?

And what's the difference between that post and a hidden <img> or
<iframe> included on a less obvious website?

I am not an expert so please, for my education, correct me if I am wrong.
Is it not so much the request, but what the request is made with?
Would not requesting with wget mitigate any attack?

The source of the page and any scripts called by the page should be enough to ascertain whether the page is malicious 
or not.
