( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am really outraged.

If you do a search for crazyinsomniac on google, you'll get two pages full of results, with most of them cached.

In fact, if you do a search on any particular user from the monastery, and throw in perl monk, you'll get their homenode.

I for one do not appreciate having a history of my homenode available a 3 months after it's last been updated.

Can't we stop google from doing this?

I really really would like to prevent this. It does not seem to me like they asked permission, and this has to violate some kind of copywright law. The web is supposed to be ever changing, and it really pisses me off when people try to take snapshots for 'commercial' use, yes i consider it commercial use, without permission.

Yes, google's cache feature is useful, and yes I do like it and use it everyday, and yes I could just not post information in a public arena, BUT I still don't like it and feel they should ask or say someplace:

Hey baby, we're a caching your goodies, so beware.

UPDATE: (April 26, 2001, 11:10am PST)
I do appreciate all the responses and what not, but you can't blame me for being paranoid. That is what sleep deprevation (among other things) does to you.

Disclaimer: Don't blame. It came from inside the void

perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"
