Google's cache is just amazing man!
I found a poem, written by moi, which was published in The Hindu during the whole NIE(Newspaper in Education) phase and which I thought had gone astray forever, for I lost the only hard copy that I had(misplaced would be misnomer). Years down the line, I type in my name into the coveted search box(just a regular ego search) and voila! Guess what I find?
A poem written by me when I was in class VIII(always had a little bit of a fascination with roman numerals).

Though the cache can have its repurcussions later on. Imagine blasting someone(boss maybe?) on a personal blog, you know just a regular vent of fury and then later realizing that it was all a big mistake once the head has been cooled. But those words will be etched for the world to see and you cant take them off( Techies, can they?). So think hard before you hit that publish button!

You need to just add the following snippet in the HEAD tag to stop Google from caching.If its already cached, next time Googlebot encounters this tag, cache entries are deleted.

Angle brackets open META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOARCHIVE" Angle brackets close

To expedite you might try requesting removal at google.com/support/webmasters

(Comments do not let me put Angle brackets per se )
