change and problems are 2 different things.

if i give my 2 year old a washable crayola, he can be left alone for up to 3
minutes without destroying anything (three minutes, pant pant, why an adult
can do so many wonderful things in that time, like use the bathroom!).

if i give him a permanent marker, i have to chase him around and make sure
he doesn't write obscenities on his mother's furniture.

a backwards analogy--as i'd prefer evolt stay with permanent markers, but i
think you see my point.

a 302 is intended for a temporary redirect.
a 301 is for a permanent address change.

google recommends a 301 for moved pages:
(see number 2)
