What is Politeness policy under Search Engines?

I am kind of dumb founded to learn about this politeness policy under one of the search engines webmaster tools.

Is the politeness issue refers to my blog tone or is it talking about repeated submissions of the web site URL or something totally different?

Under Wikipedia web page for Web Crawler, it has text as "The MercatorWeb crawler follows an adaptive politeness policy: if it took t seconds to download a document from a given server, the crawler waits for 10t seconds before downloading the next page." Now what does it mean? This is talking about something totally different about time and response.

I may have to hold on to this issue as I couldn't figure out what is what. If you have an answer to enlighten me please post it in the comments.

Thanks.

The Beginning of the "Page Not Found" gTLDs

Have you heard, there are companies that are trying to hoard domain endings like ".live", ".moto" or ".lol"?

All this seems good from a business prospective but what about from content prospective. Have we not already gone through the horrors of page are page resulting to a "Page Not Found" trap?

Many time's when I search for a technical document or information document, I end up with a link, looking at the "This domain is no longer active" and with junk content with bunch of search results related to the domain-name. Now the horror could be ten folds if these new extensions are misused for content website.

We hope the people that are paying large amounts to get such TLD's will not used it for revenue generation but to promote better content.

We are finally seems to be getting away from Klout score overuse as mentioned by recent PC Mag slideshow article and we don't want to fall into TLD craze.
