The whole thing is just silly. I guy should be able to simply delete some folders/pages and redirect them to the old English only version without worrying about such nonsense like dup content or cloaking. These days almost whatever you do will get penalized in one form or another. I miss the days when we just had to make good websites with quality content and the search engines followed along.
I know the feeling. I've got one directory that is roboted-out-- perfectly fine for humans, I just don't want it indexed. And IT FEELS SO ### GOOD to be able to move files and rearrange files and split files and fiddle with links without once having to think about how many things I will now need to add to htaccess-- and keep them there for all eternity-- for the sole benefit of search engines.
And oops. Sorry, phranque, of course you're right. [G], not [F].
