Need help finding personal ad feedback

I remember reading at least one Ask question where the Mefite was asking for help with their own specific personal ad profile. I want to go read those posts again, but I can't find any of them now for the life of me. [more inside]

How to make profile photo/info unfindable to an internet search engine?

When I began actively using Metafilter I put my photo and personal information in my profile, but discovered this was all viewable to anyone using a search engine so I took it off. Can I make my photo private to Metafilter members only, or, if not, might the moderators consider making this possible in the future? For those who know about computers, why might this be a difficult request for a website to fulfill? More inside... [more inside]

Shield askmes from google searches?

This is probably a stupid question but is there a way to shield anonymous AskMe questions from google searches? It's a medical question about a very sensitive family matter and I'd hate to have any family member EVER stumble upon all the background details of my inquiry.

MeFi Search

I'm thinking about creating a MeFi-specific search engine. I've created search engines for specific remote sites before, though nothing of the size of MeFi, but I'm fairly confident I can make something more useful than Yahoo or Google for MeFi searches.

My questions are:

1) Has this been done before? I looked through the search results for "search," but didn't find anything beyond the internal search on Yahoo and Google returns pretty much every MeTa post because the word "search" is in the header.

2) Is this kosher? I'm not talking about providing full-content results, just snippets and links like Google or Yahoo provide, only better results and more search options specific to MeFi, e.g. searching deleted posts by explanation.

3) Assuming favorable answers to 1) and 2), what would others like to see in a MeFi search? Initially, this is just a personal project and I don't want to make any promises I may not keep, but I would like to hear about your search ponies before starting.

Projects Searches MetaTalk

The Projects search box does a site-specific search of MetaTalk, not Projects.

Searching and Flagging

PonyFilter - search Threads&Comments in the blue? Seeing what posts have been flagged as? Or has these been asked about already? (metatalk search sez no...)

Search by Date

As an alternative to machaus's idea (below) couldn't the search engine be searchable within a date range? For example use the MeFi search just over the past month and let google search the rest.
