    Is it possible to only disallow indexing of one particular thread by search engines?

    The reason for this is that I want to hide a forum but I want the thread inside to be reached by the URL even if the person is an guest. However this thread should not be indexed and displayed in Search Engine results such as Google.

    Many search engines ignore the robots.txt file.

    Well I guess that is correct.. but in the same sense, there are 1000's and 1000's of "search engines"

    Google doesn't, and that's all that matters to me.
    You can also tell WMT to remove a URL I believe.
