I think the idea there is to hide them from the search engine spidering.

Humans can ignore them for being obviously spam, and most people won't even see them due to reaping, but the spider bots are very aggressive and spot them almost immediately.

    I'd always assumed that nodes didn't appear on the spiderable PM server until they were approved. A quick google proves that wrong unfortunately.

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
