Jim Harrison points out an interesting blog post by someone at Yahoo regarding what might be considered “accidental caching”. What I especially liked about this article is that the writer points out that the ISA firewall isn’t a “bad citizen” and in fact, remains true to agreed upon standards for HTTP. That’s a common threat with the ISA firewall — the dev team has always worked hard to stay with agreed upon standards and not make new ones on their own.
