The latter is correct, but because techwr-l is also shadowed to a Usenet
newsgroup, posts on the list can also be found in Groups searches.

There's a file you can put in your web server folders with a command that is
supposed to keep spiders from indexing the pages in that folder. It's not
there in most web servers by default, and I doubt site such as techwr-l
would want such a restriction because the ability to seach for the valuable
information that's here would be restricted.

I think it's the else would email posts to the techwr site
end up in Google. I really doubt that Eric submits the emails to a
search engine.

Do you Eric?

This leads me to ask related question, I read in an article in INTERCOM
awhile back, that if you don't submit your website to a search engine,
the "spider" programs out there will never pick it up unless another
website that is indexed contains a link to it. But I've also heard that
those spiders routinely crawl the web and pick up anything and
everything out there. Which is correct?
