Thanks for the warning - seems like a very odd setting for a default.

that's what I thought.
I certainly never expected it and only came across it by accident.
With wordpress being so easy to install when offered by hosting companies anybody can do it - you don't have to be a webmaster per se.
I wonder how many are sat there wondering why they're not doing very well in search engines!

Which version is this, WP 2.3 or 2.4?

The current version, 2.3.2, does not have that privacy option set.
I cannot speak for beta or other versions.

the version is 2.3.2
Installed this week. It's under the 'options' tab then 'privacy' tab
Below is the page text next to the 2 check boxes and the default was set to block.
I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Sphere, Technorati) and archivers
I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors

"I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Sphere, Technorati) and archivers "
In this option do they limit crawling of only top search engines, and disallowing everyone else?
If that's the case then it is a very shortsighted move, especially with default as described above.
