That piece of information only came later on in that discussion, I suspect.
I was under the impression that the page was void.

I know, I know. *smile* I guess that SE's and interactive sites just can't
sit side by side.

The steps I can take will not prevent evil, which is uninvited traffic and
spam comment attempts. It is the /majority/ of sites that attracts this
form of bots. The bots couldn't care less what gets indexed and what
doesn't. In fact, they can hit well-protected sites just for spite.

What upsets me, for example, is that half of my referrer URL's is spam.
Also, I might get hundreds of unique IP's on my site, all of which are
spammers' proxies. It adds a lot of 'noise' and makes me (and many others)
