Whos fault it is matters because that determines who is going to fix it.

If the wrong party attempts to fix it you wind up with a hacked solution that isnt going to be useful across platforms.

The simple solution to this from fedisearch side, and what I'd personally recommend, would be to check each profile of a reply and see if it has a no-index metatag. If it does then dont index the reply.

This would be an easy solution, standards compliant, and would address your concerns in as reasonable a way as is possible.

Yup this is indeed the way we are aiming for. However, still facing some technical difficulties with the performance when applying this method on mega threads where many people are being mentioned.
