Signs you're abusing SOAP

Big red flag that you either don't know how to use SOAP or that you shouldn't be using SOAP for this job:

You should be either creating a SOAP object tree corresponding to the XML structure and passing your data as SOAP structured data, or you should be removing SOAP entirely and using simple HTTP POST.
