    No, we don't want search engines indexing multiple version of the same page. It dilutes their usefulness and possibly the ranking of the pages.
      For SEO purposes I think it would be better to have a single live site and the rest should redirect to the same address.

      As it is now, some people will link to others to and the other addresses. That will divide the inbound links and reduce the page rank of each page. That's true for all the nodes.

        As it is now, some people will link to others to and the other addresses.

        And they will promptly be told to use [id://] or [href://] for linking

    Going by the comment in, it is not a bug, but rather deliberate.

    Perhaps,, serves only periodic, static snapshots, rather than server intensive, dynamic content?
