That's where the issue of dilution comes up. For instance, think about
diaries/calendars in blogs. For people these may be useful, but to search
engines, this seems undesirable. It leads to dupes. If only search engines
could practice judgment. They talk about AI in their (Google's) search
engine nowadays... big media buzz.

Bear in mind that, in relation to your site, Google Groups is not listed
among Web results. Even my *own* messages are being echoed elsewhere...

A big concern are also press releases that reach several pages via XML
