Weigh in everyone.
I recently discovered that the search widget on this site won't work if I don't turn on PUBLIC in the settings and let Google crawl it. So I removed it. Muh. That didn't make me happy when I wanted to share a link with someone and had to go fishing for the page by hand.
I didn't want to make the blog a search engine destination, trying to avoid the bots and other unnecessary hassles of blog monitoring, but, well, without me telling you where to find something, or you using the listings by tag and filtering through them on your own… it's going to get messy.
What say you?
