Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

Hiding profiles without 'Activity' content from search engines is part of a broader approach to 'solving' spam profiles on wordpress.org. See https://www.jonoalderson.com/wordpress/wordpress-org-toxic-profile-spam/ for long-form research and rationale.

Specifically, we should add a meta robots tag with a noindex, follow value to any profile which has no 'Activity' content (and to any associated profile pages; e.g., in the https://wordpress.org/support/users/ section).
