Great points Tangor. Perhaps webmasters can start using the "<meta name="robots" content="noarchive" />" tag (that's not a noindex tag, just a "don't grab a full copy kthx" tag) more diligently since it can actually be argued that we're making the content available ourselves.
I used ask a lot in its early years, not so much lately since it's not at the tip of my fingers when I know exactly what I'm looking for to begin with. I don't remember ever getting frustrated by ask.
