Shouldn't let any Thread to be indexed when __NOINDEX__ is added to the introduction (header) of a page
Open, LowestPublic

Description

Currently, even if a user add __NOINDEX__ to its talkpage, all threads created on it are *still indexed* by search engines, since the extension creates each commont in a different page (where the user can only add the magic word *after* the topic was created). The same happens for other pages (not only user talk pages).

For privacy reasons, this shouldn't happen. Specifically, the users should *not* be requested to add __NOINDEX__ to zillions of comments in order to get all of them not being indexed.

NOINDEX is stored in pageprops table, so this is not complex, I think.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
