true, but i think frank has pointed out, that the archives are archives 
and not dictionaries or technical references.

several email-addresses found in the archives (a fact that could be 
discussed separately) are dead by now.
a lot of links (not only pure-data.org) are dead by now.
several (virtual) posters do not exist any more.

so what is the difference

as for hans' idea to only change links after the iem-launch of 
pure-data.org, i don't really understand it.
references/links to the "old" pure-data.org will never work again (most 
probably), *but* following them will eventually lead to some 
DNS-grabber's homepage: what does it tell us ?

and just a sidemark:
i'd love to see the postings in the archive talking about
"hey, http://puredata.org does not work any more -> well, the 
puredata.org domain has been grabbed, the new one is http://puredata.org"
