I have noticed more in alt.home.repair than here posts that are marked
to not be archived. Is this something the ISPs are adding to messages
to reduce the overhead or does it have to be done by the poster?
I'd ask over there but this group is (as usual) more knowledgeable
about this subject.
Any poster can indicate that they do not desire their posts to be
archived by adding the X-No-Archive: yes header to their post. Pretty
silly, since the header is non-standard, and not necessarily obeyed.
Yes, google deletes them after around 30 days or so. There's a note
in google on the post that it is not going to be archived if they set
that header. I believe the practice is pretty much entirely aimed at
