"If you select 'Yes' we will include your blog in Google Blog Search and ping Weblogs.com. If you select 'No', everyone can still view your blog but search engines will be instructed not to crawl it."
So I was perusing my settings for my blog and read this statement. It is weird that the image that popped up in my head was that of a personified search engine dragging himself with his hands, bloodied and burnt to the point of cracking and bleeding, across the desert, half starved and reaching up toward the oasis that is me and my blog.
I think I might have an overactive imagination.
