Google doesn't like printthread.php urls -- we should add a noindex - Raion - 2022-04-17

Easily fixed:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex">

To printthread.php. Google balks over this because in most cases it's designed to not be traversed by mobile users. 

/archive/ serves a more pertinent example here of where to go. 

I'm not sure yet how templates are stored on GitHub, and my theme is very heavily nonstandard...

Diff is above, ignore label it's for NOINDEX not nofollow. Either way, I'm not using github so if someone can put it up on my behalf that's fine.
