Re: [vox-tech] X-No-Archive Inheritance?

I hesitate to post my 2-cents due to ignorance, but here goes:

It seems to me that the point of choosing not to archive a message (with X-No-Archive) is because the message is not worth archiving for some reason (e.g. one-liner, too silly, etc.).

Anyone thinking that they can protect personal information by not archiving a message should think again. Any message sent to a vox list is sent to over 100 different person's mailboxes who can do with it what they will...

One implementation which would seem to work well would be for a filter
to check the headers to all messages in the "References" header; and
if it found X-No-Archive, keep the response unarchived also. This is
not trivial to implement though (but not too difficult, either), and I
don't think I care quite enough to spend time on it. :-(

The second someone uses a mailer that doesn't include these, or replies
to a digest message, the threading is lost, and the X-No-Archive is _gone_,
