Forum Descriptions?

Can you disable forum descriptions? Or do i have to remove them all manually? Seems like it would be a good idea for SEO to be able to make them invisible to members/guests but readable by Spiders.

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> Forum List -> Show Forum Descriptions on Node List

Normally spiders are considered to be guests.

There is another option on the same page to hide descriptions in tooltips. That might work for you:

Woops Blond moment and im not even blond. I meant Category descriptions..
That requires a template edit:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> node_category_level_1

Find and remove this piece of code:

Code:
<xen:if is="{$category.description}"><blockquote class="nodeDescription baseHtml">{xen:raw $category.description}</blockquote></xen:if>

How would we go about just hiding the category description with CSS?
I've like the description to still be viewable to search engines.

Thanks
