Banned from google?
Wouldn't that affect 'Miserable Failure' in some way?

Oh wait, the 'banned from google' was a recent announcement wasn't it?
I seem to remember something on TechTV about Google's CEO stating that they're going to start cleaning up google searching as a whole.

Is that what you referencing?

SamG: Perhaps Paul/the developers is using the validator service on the public site rather than looking up his IP and doing it that way.

With karma you can set it so you don't see anyone's posts who are below a certain level of karma. So you can set it so you will see no one's posts if they have negative karma, you will only see the posts of those with zero or more.

Here's a question. Apologies in advance if I missed it earlier in the thread.
But what about topics created by a user with karma below your threshold?
Would the topic exist, but when you click on it you'll see nothing but the "This post was created by a user with a karma level lower than you have set." or whatever?

I would assume this would be the situation, but I was just curious if someone would be willing to release some info :D.

Someone probably ran the board through either the HTML validator or the CSS validator. Those are the two bots the W3C has.

Yeah, AJD mentioned that as well. I've submitted the site to the validator to see what would happen, and so far nothing. But it does make some sense that it could have been some sort of validation going on.
