    ok so they crawl a site and see all the code and everything, so wouldnt they see a plugin for wordpress that makes its a autoblog? this confuses me.

    They can, but that's not how they like to think, good algorithm designers like to find general solutions to problems that would apply regardless of the underlying platform/plugin/tool. They know that whatever footprint a plugin is leaving can be hidden or changed. People don't currently hide them because google is not penalizing them, so from an algorithm design pov, it's a waste of time for them to go after every little plugin that does something nasty. Think how they went after affiliate links, and then now everyone is using gocodes or whatever, they can go after that as well, but it's a lost game. They would rather spend their time finding an intelligent solution that would deal with the general problem.

    Why allow Google to look in your plugin folder? - Block it with your robots.txt file.

    I don't think it even matters if a person is using the auto-blogging feature to post blog posts. It is a feature available in both "blogger" as well as in Wordpress. So, why would Google take some action on such features ?

    Don't trust robot.txt, and not all search
    engines play the fair play.

    Use instead .htaccess and you also block
    not search engine snoopers.
