As recently as  three years ago, Bosch, NGK and Champion all specifically 
stated in their  websites to NOT use anti-Seize on spark plugs. For some 
that I cannot  begin to guess, they have removed those recommendations. So 
is the who and  how. 

Thank you. The questions I asked are now answered. I will change my way of 
thinking about the use of anti-seize compounds.
