It means that the article I was (not) quoting from had the X-No-Archive
header set, which indicates that the author doesn't want his words
archived - quoting them would go against that wish, so Gnus has
functionality to avoid doing that.

[The variable message-cite-articles-with-x-no-archive]

Indeed, I have.

Because I want to respect the wishes of the people I respond to.

Also, I think setting X-No-Archive is kind of silly, if not asocial.
This functionality helps to showcase that.

The header does not indicate motive ;-)

It is the standard "this-is-not-a-standard-header-yet"-prefix. It is
common in formats that employ headers.

In some environments the use of "X-" for non-standardized headers has
been deprecated, as I understand it, but there are a number of de facto
standard X-headers.
