Hello Bob,

the thread to which you refer does seem to have valid questions, at least to me.
I use E-Mail, as such I don't care how the content of E-Mails might be
validated by 3rd parties over unrelated 3rd party protocols.
If someones webmail client generates advertisements according to the
content of any mail, it is none of my business.

Also, google does not care about E-Mail for their search machine
service - however, they of course crawl through the web archive.
For this case the archive on goldelicio.com correctly sets this
header: <META NAME="robots" CONTENT="index,nofollow">

If other 3rd party archives don't and other search engines don't care,
why should it be any of my business?

As such, I have absolutely no understanding to your criticism and the
reason why you would write this mail.
