Short of banning their bot, how do you stop the caching on microsoft search?

From the beta help area [beta.search.msn.com]:
<META NAME="msnbot" CONTENT="nocache">
OR
<META NAME="msnbot" CONTENT="noarchive">

No guarantee that it works as advertised yet... ;)

It works for me so changing from

<META NAME="GOOGLEBOT" CONTENT="NOARCHIVE">

to

<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOARCHIVE">

should work for webmasterworld [webmasterworld.com]

That is unacceptable. They need to obey the google bot tag too.

I will display my ignorance - but why would one want to stop them from caching?

Hi mark1615,

In certain instances you do not want your page to be cached. for example your terms and conditions. These pages may change from time to time, so you only really want the users to have acess to the recent (up to date) version.

What nonsense, why would/should MSN bot obey a google-specific tag?
