my Nginx report in error log with

2012/07/24 13:00:16 [notice] 19056#0: *3275841 "^(GET|HEAD|POST)$" matches "GET", client:, server: _, request: "GET /template/images/loading.gif HTTP/1.1", host: "", referrer: ""</code></pre>

And in nginx.conf

server {
    if ($request_method !~ ^(GET|HEAD|POST)$ ) {
        return 404;

I don't know why nginx noticed that in error_log
