That's always a concern. Tell them that the proxy:

* Uses Intelligent Caching Technology(tm, if we were microsoft)
* Stores pages as a percentage of their age, so that less-frequently modified
pages get stored longer, and more frequently modified pages get stored for less
* Acknowledges the standard HTTP cache-control mechanisms, which Web authors and
administrators _do_ use to control when and how long their pages might be
* That it isn't totally perfect, but it's pretty close.

Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
