    I shouldn't be allowed to do this.

      I keep reading everywhere that a swf origination from one domain can't access data from a server in another domain, unless the server allows access via a crossdomain.xml file.

      HOWEVER, I naively used URLLoader to do an HTTP request, and it will grab data from any domain I try. For example, if I use the url http://cnn.com, I can see the html for the page, and I guarantee I'm not on CNN's allowed list.

      Can anybody enlighten me on why I'm able to do this?

      Thanks,
      Jack
