I personally don't care what people think
It's not what people think; it's what they know. Or, in this case, what they do know that ain't so. I'll wager that your average human has no idea that a website can prevent search engines from seeing or indexing its content. So if you search for something and don't find it, it means that the thing you're searching for doesn't exist.
Incidentally, back on page 2 of this thread someone mentioned "blank.html" as referer. Can anyone pinpoint when this started? The earliest I can find is the 19th of this month. Fortuitously it was from google.fi (bona fide Finnish IP, using Chrome). Not google dot com. A different google.
Personally I consider "blank.html" to be Cheating. But it also makes me nervous, because if you go to investigate-- the page exists, and is indeed blank even in "view source" mode-- who knows what kind of php nefariousness is going on in the background?
