Don't for one second believe that pages which aren't indexed can't affect your rankings. This was an eye opening exercise.
As far as I can follow that thread (and I'm not sure if I really did), I see a very mixed up server serving up some very mixed up "pages". Interesting -- and seems quite likely that it might affect how an SE sees a site -- but not quite exactly what we're talking about here.
