This was done so as to reuse the old code that handles HEAD requests
through --spider.
I was planning on adding this in the docs that, for the moment,
--method=HEAD is simply an alias to --spider.

The correct way to fix this would be to separate the logic for handling
HEAD requests from that for --spider functionality and then reuse the code.

Thanking You,
