What is it you're trying to do? I don't know what you mean by "delete 
expire time," once the article is expired it's GONE. You can adjust 
expire time to keep articles longer if you have more disk space, that's 
how you control the time an article stays around.

Just be prepared to have the data take more disk space and some 
operations to run slower.
