Same old shit, the client wants this and that on their website with no consideration as to who is going to publish new content, as a result site goes live and never touched again, hence the request to remove the dates.

A similar strategy is used in marketing so you could repost articles in social media without them being considered "as old" when shared.
Or it is that, or they are just dumb lazy guys that don't guarantee publishing consistency and prefer to hide that from their users.
