Just wanted to point out that when you search 'SETI@Home' via Google there is a link amongst the main links of the SETI@Home website (right above the link that says 'More results from Berkeley.edu>>') titled 'Buy xanax'. Clicking it takes you to the rules and policies page (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/info.php).

It appears that this is still residual spam from when the google cached versions of our pages were poisoned with Xanax spam. It doesn't appear that the word Xanax appears in any of the pages in the google cache (apart from some user profile spam), so I assume it will go away eventually.
