But we do want google et al to index the archives don't we?
I don't, no.
I've found myself joining all sorts of lists that I found googling for this or that subject.
So you see the archives as marketing to increase usage of the list? And for that, you'll give away your users email addresses to the spammers?
Do you get high quality new subscribers through google? Do you know? Or does it attract vampires and trolls?
Are there any other benefits to being googled than being a walking billboard to the list?
