In WordPress before 3.2, if the Settings, Privacy Settings was set to " I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors," WordPress displayed "Search Engines Blocked" next to the site name in the header of the admin panels.
I miss this in 3.2. I maintain a staging site and a live site for my company. On the staging site, I have this privacy setting set as above. Not only does this prevent me from having to block robots, it also provided an excellent visual way to differentiate between my two WordPress installations, which are otherwise (by design) identical.
Please PLEASE put this back into the next release.
