Description Ral315 2007-02-02 22:27:33 UTC
The following directory should be disallowed in robots.txt (with cascading
protection, we're beginning to forego {{deletedpage}} on the English Wikipedia
in favor of this method):

Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia:Protected_titles/

So that they don't appear in search engines (for obvious reasons).
Comment 1 Ral315 2007-03-21 19:31:57 UTC
We also need to add a line for Request an account:

Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia:Request_an_account/

So that e-mail addresses don't get spam as easily.

While you're at it, what about doing bug 6746 too?
