As has been indicated, you're looking in the wrong place for the data.
The query string (.QueryString) is part of the URL used to locate the
receiving page, hence when you modify the URL in the second example, the
information is available.
The POST method adds data as a "payload" in the request body sent to the
server, and this is accessed differently through the Request.Form
If you're new to authoring server-side and you haven't already, I'd
suggest that you read RFC 2616, Hypertext Transfer Protocol
(HTTP/1.1) to be sure you behave properly (especially when sending
data from the server). You might also want to review Microsoft's
overview of processing user input in ASP. Though it refers to forms
throughout, that's irrelevant in this case: the transmission method (GET
vs. POST) is key.

Hope that helps,
