   Zim,
   I think there are may ways to by pass expertsexchange, I have been using google cache technique for long. But the point is google webmaster guidelines and how easily expert exchange breaks it.
Many here might remeber heated dsuccsions about the same in case of webmasterworld few months back.

thanks

I'm sorry, but except for some links/images that suggest to sign in to see the solution, I don't see the problem. The answers are still there if you scroll down to the bottom of the page and the difference between the page served to Google and the page served to the user is minimal.

Webmaster World used to only display a log-in page, disabled the cache and was still included in Google's search results.

yes, I think Ionut Alex is right, you can see the answers in the bottom of the page now, but I feel it was not earlier there, I usually used to get scrammbled text only. You can find many references online about this, even a userscript, userscripts.org/scripts/show/1 ... :-)

I only got this when I blocked the experts-exchange cookies.

Thanks Ionut Alex. Chitu,
   have seomthing else to add now, I earlier checked in opera, which displayed me the results in thebottom as you explained. good, I guess the same works with Firefox also.
  
But when I test with IE 6.0, the following happens
   1. I try to access experts-exchange.com/Networkin ...
   Since I have not visited the site in this session (I am accessing the site for the first time today) , no problem I can see the results.
   2. Now when I refresh, or check another link, experts-exchange.com/Miscellan ... , I am seeing the scrabmled text only, no answers are displayed, even after the advertisements as in the above screenshot.
   Clearly a case of cloaking!!
   Any comments?

Thats clearly cloaking using cookies

remove all cookies from EE & refresh the page to see whatever you want

Crap
