Topic: Disadvantages of request.parameters

Hi,

May I know if it's advisable to use request.parameters instead of using .params[:<varName>]? Because I am trying to access data from request using:

   @userfrm = User.new(params[:userfrm])
   @username = userfrm.username
   @password = userfrm.password

Here's my form view:
    Username: <br /> <%= text_field
