Isn't this a bit bogus since even if your web log does not support displaying
items that are older than say two months, the chance that they're found by
the internet archive is quite high, except that you've explicitely disallowed
this, and as well for planet.debian.org?

Maybe, if you don't want your output to be found on the Internet, you
should not make it available on the Internet?
