Comment (by Denis-de-Bernardy):

 Replying to [comment:90 cais]:
 > I think this must be the most succinct and simple reason to move to
 `%%postname%%` as the default that I have read ... compelling enough that
 I am going to change my sites from "Month and name" to "Post name" right

 Then again it's not necessarily advisable for other reasons, at least in
 the majority of cases. Unless you're constantly producing evergreen
 content, you actually *want* the date to be around for usability reasons.
 If it's in the url all the better. Plus, you get the archive links to work
 by simply removing the post name, and then the day, month and year.
