Dear Dan Crow @ Google, you didn’t convince me. I doubt you can convince anyone at our side of the fence. I can’t support your initiative because there is no incentive. Kindest regards - Sebastian

I was wondering what I was supposed to use that thing for, glad I’m not the only one who finds it completely unnecessary.

yeh but its probaly a CYA from a legal perspective so the legal cases like the belgium newspares have less of a leg to stand on. Its so a Google lawyer can say "oh so you didt use the method we have to expire content from our cache - that we have widly publisized " some people need to think before commenting

I’m sure there is some really great potential for the tag. It’s just none of us have a need for it right now. Take, for example, when you buy your car without a cup holder. You didn’t think you would use it. But then, one day, you find yourself driving home with three cups of fruit punch and no cup holders. Doh! I say we wait it out for a while before we really jump on any conclusions about the tag.
