Because there's a big difference between not archiving something
entirely ("I will not archive Michelle's website") and modifying the
archive ("I will search and replace all text in which Michelle said
this."). One is a blanket all or nothing. Another is a modification of a
whole -- if one is willing to do that, the entire integrity of the
archive comes into question in regards to what was changed but was NOT
disclosed to the viewer.
Likewise, hiding specific web pages (a single part of a whole) is an
entirely different matter - that causes very little break in flow or
conversation (unless, of course, you choose to hide say, chapter 7 of a
30 chapter book). The equivalent "hiding" in an IRC log ("hide all my
text") is entirely disruptive.

No, no, it was. I was told as much ;)
