You may have missed the other post I made. GC used to have that anti web crawler thingamabob. Or at least, that's what I was told a very long time ago. That's why I brought the topic up when I accidentally found a post at Gewgul. As said, it probably doesn't matter at this point, but I am curious if this opt out was changed intentionally at some point. We may never know unless the right person clarifies it.
