Ignore this post

Here’s an interesting suggestion for a more comprehensive way to fight comment spam: Create standard HTML tags that tell search engines to ignore the content within when indexing. With such a tag around your comments, there’d be no good reason for spammers to invade. The SearchEngineWatch blog has the scoop. Thanks to Scott for the tip.

    This is why the comments section of the original MovableType design is a separate popup page, you can just use the Robot Exclusion Protocol on the comments template and they’re invisible to Google (and other webcrawlers).
