Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Stack Exchange's robots.txt includes the existing short links URLs starting with /q/ and /u/, but hasn't been updated to include the new referral short links for answers starting with /a/.

Yikes. Google indexed a lot of these: inurl: Fortunately I don't think they come up too easily in normal search results. – Jefromi Dec 9 '11 at 18:34
Oh, my bad - those results aren't actually indexed. Google just knows they exist. – Jefromi Dec 9 '11 at 18:42
