whitehouse.gov’s open door policy. Even for spiders.

While doing research on robot.txt files, which sit on a web site and tell visiting search engine spiders what pages and directories to skip when they index your pages, I found this article at codeulate.com regarding the new whitehouse.gov robot.txt file.

Two days ago, under the Bush administration, the file listed over 2400 directories that were not searchable on whitehouse.gov. Paranoid much?

Under Obama, one.

Wow, the last few posts have made me out to be a totally desperate, nerd obsessed, pervert, photoshopping stalker2.

Hmmm. Let’s just keep this between us, eh?

I promise my next post will be on how bored I am with the whole Clinton/Obama thing (does Hillary’s delusional sense of entitlement irritate anyone else?) or California’s recent Gay Marriage Ban reversal:
