    I always thought that, when somebody uses the code-tags in his post, the text or links between these code-tags wouldn't be indexed by Google. But I discovered that this isn't the case.

    For example:

    in this thread:
    When you Google the exact first sentence (between quotes) in the second code-box (my modified text), this specific thread shows up as a result in Google.

    Did I discover a flaw in the code-tags-system, or am I just being paranoid and is it normal that the coded text is also being indexed?
