You've got to be kidding!

I'm sure I'm not the only one here who thinks Google's cached results are an immensly useful feature. I use them daily; perhaps hourly.

If I don't want to make information publicly available or archived, I simply don't put it online, ever, in any form. I don't believe you can have it both ways; you can't advocate a free, searchable, enlightening and informative internet, while crying "copyright violation!" when you spot a stale about me page in some search enginge's web-cache. Perhaps they are violating copyright law; well so much the better, and kudos to them.

Yes, Google is commercial, but they are really the only search engine built by and for people with Clue, and that makes them Good Guys, in my book. If Google hears enough complaints of this sort, they will certainly relent, and become another worthless fenced-in MSN/aol-style portal. That would be a very sad day, for users of Google and for the internet at large.
