The following directory should be disallowed in robots.txt (with cascading

in favor of this method):

Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia:Protected_titles/

So that they don't appear in search engines (for obvious reasons).

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

We also need to add a line for Request an account:

Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia:Request_an_account/

So that e-mail addresses don't get spam as easily.

While you're at it, what about doing bug 6746 too?
