Bing ignoring noarchive

I've noticed Bing is ignoring <meta name="robots" contents="noarchive"> in some cases. However it's inconsistent, and I don't find this to be true across all the websites I've got those meta tags on.

Is anyone else finding this? Should I swap it to meta name="msnbot" for more consistency?

My sites are completely NOARCHIVE across the board.

Just checked BING and they were not cached.

Mine is in all caps, could BING be partially case sensitive? ;)

<meta name="ROBOTS" content="NOARCHIVE">

Just in case that tag was copy & pasted out of some code, thought I should point out that I believe it should be content="" and not contents=""

Uh-hum, that might cause some inconsistency.

I'm with IncrediBILL, we NoArchive and block ia_archiver by default.

I really dig how clean the SERPs look without the cache links. And, I have this sneaky suspicion that the NoArchive forces an "always fresh" set of SERPs. ;)

Thanks Olias. It's amazing what can get missed when it's hiding in plain sight. I'm glad the snafu was mine and not Bing's, anyway.
