Interesting thing is: one of the major options (top-level of the 'digit
maze', alongside marketing/sales) in Google's live support (telephone) is
the removal of cache or pages. Since options such as this exist on vocal

I am not implying anything, but only stating what could have been, would
have been, should never have been.
