Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

When you leave a review for a plugin, it generates a page, like this one: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/really-excellent-great-awesome/.

Many of these are VERY thin (e.g., "Good plugin"). We should add meta robots noindex, follow directive when:

  • There is <= 100 characters of body content, and;
  • There are no replies

Is there any conceivable reason to extend this to the support forums as a whole? Rather than just reviews?

Ooh, if that's straightforward, that'd be nice!
