Jason Row .NET Development on the Canadian East Coast

Every so often I like to Google my name and see what comes up (and curses to Jason Row the photographer for getting the top 2 spots today!).  I then thought I'd check my wife's name to see what appears and what do you know, Google returns a result pointing to the profile page for the Community Server account that I created for her.

I haven't even told my wife about this account yet and even when I created it I don't remember making any entries in the blogs, photos, forums, or other sections of the site. And I can't find a single page that lists the users which a google spider/robot would follow to get her profile page.

I know with my new server I didn't get the Robots.txt file back up to prevent the search engines from indexing every page on my site.  So, does anyone have any ideas or conspiracy theories as to how this is being done? Does google detect that I'm running Community Server and uses that info to locate more information that might not be public?
