So today I noticed some prying eyes had been meandering through my /Templates/ and /Library/ folders of a site. To keep people out of these folders I put in an index.html file that redirects them to f--ckyou.com (for a little humor bonus).
My question is this. Will any of the SEs pick up these files and deem me an adult site or mess with my rankings in any way?
For those how wish to take a look (I thought it was funny). go to
Warning: It is an adult site you will be redirected to.

There are other ways that you can keep people out of your files and folders besides redirecting them to a page. I know for one, if I was redirected to that page that you created, it would only make me work harder to get into those files and folders.
Instead, you can make these pages and folders only available to users coming from a certain IP (yours).
The files I am protecting are of no real value. If someone did DL those files they would really be wasting their own time. They are just Library items and Templates that I created for the site. However, as I stated before I am interested in knowing how to protect files for future use.
Although, for curiosities sake. No one has answered my original question
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">? I redirected some malicious visitors by ip address to pages made specifically for them and didn't particularly want SEs indexing them. Just incidental, but one page included an SWF that emulated a file download - then browser crashing hell.
