stuck after POST request #83

after i submit the post form on www.aa.com I get stuck on the page saying "please wait"
shouldn't node.io's request stop on the last page that I am redirected to?

var url = submitform.do?this=that;
var nextPage;
this.getHtml(url, function (err, $) {
$('meta[http-equiv=refresh]').each(function (j, a) {
nextPage = a.content.match(REgExp);//match a relative link in this attribute
url = "www.aa.com/" + nextPage;
this.getHtml(url, parsePage);

if there is a cleaner way to nest the requests please let me know

Unfortunately no, you'll need to parse the response to get the next url
