Spiders can be kept at bay with META tags, if that's the issue. Personally, I like
having the archive public so that when I submit an article I can check into the
content archive and see how it's progressing. I can certainly live without it, as
any issues are always handled by private email, but I'll miss it nonetheless.

I'll just send you guys emails instead...."-slobber-slobber-  is my article going
up? -pant- pant-"
