David Johnson updated ROL-1145:
-------------------------------

    Fix Version/s:     (was: 3.2)
                   4.1

If you want to fix this in 4.0, now is the time to speak up.

Otherwise, we'll take another look in the 4.1 timeframe.

> > The calendar in Roller can cause a small problem for search engine spiders 
> > since it's possible to page backwards in dates by the calendar. It's 
> > actually possible to page pack to the year zero...

> > A spider hitting such a "trap" will just continue to page backwards until it 
> > "gets tired".

> > There are two dangerous problems with this:
> > - This can cause unnecessary stress on the server running Roller (ex; Yahoos 
> > spider make big slurps and do actually not consider if the server can handle 
> > it or not).
> > - At some point the spider will "get tired" because such paging will 
> > generate a lot of similar pages (when there are no content all pages will be 
> > similar) and the spider will then mark the site as "possible spam" due to 
> > all the similar pages.

> > when the first post was added to the blog. To be able to page beyond that
