why cache data?

I've been reading lots about the issues with the cache and resetting the index etc etc.


I don't understand the purpose of the cache, can somebody please explain why an Open Data site is not accessing the data directly.

There are plenty of easy mechanisms to go from REST endpoint to JSON to shapefile/KML/GDB quite quickly so I don't understand the concept behind caching the data. Is it really just for speed?

I think when people are downloading Open Data they can accept a longer wait. It proves that it is actually fetching new data.

I would much rather see an option for 'do not cache'
