Dear Google: ban forums that require logins for replies May 5, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 11:45 pm

FUCK YOU, forum that requires someone to login/register to see replies. If it was some sort of pay-gateway, it’d be more acceptable, but when it’s free and you’re trying to get one-off users to register just to inflate your numbers, you are a cunt.

The real problem is that sites like this (and experts exchange) get indexed in google, wherein google is allowed to see the full page but regular users aren’t. Stop this, punish them by not indexing them until they remove that restriction. How great would that be? “For your individual forum posts to be indexed, you have to remove the restriction on viewing replies.”

That’s a rule I can live with.

    Get the User Agent extension for Firefox and impersonate the googlebot so that the forum bends over backwards to accommodate you.

    Out of curiosity, which forum are you talking about?

    I am a programmer and spam-hater.
    If exp.exchange (*puke*) requires you to log in, it’s because they make money selling your email, so you can get some much needed spam….
    Now I am getting extremely annoyed by just seeing them in my google searches. I use the hide em button, so should I do the same search again, I will be spared. Not enough: sometimes I would accidently visit their horrible website by accident; so I added a line in my hosts file to redirect any request away from the nazi experts exchange website.
    STILL not enough, I NEVER want to see that url again!!!
    Obviously, I’m not alone: http://userscripts.org/scripts/review/9462
    PLEASE GOOGLE. BAN EXPERTS-EXCHANGE!
