I was fed up with tonnes of dynamic URLs getting indexed by Yahoo. I had removed those links from my site but the urls were still there. Also were some old and outdated static urls too. So I went ahead and deleted the whole site from the root. I mean everything below www. my-site. com (including the root).

My question is has anyone doens this before in the recent past? If yes, what were the results? Did Yahoo come back and re-index the entire site from scratch? Or since the entere site was in deleted status, Yahoo ignored the urls and didnt re-index them?

Please let me know.
