Google's HTML-to-WML gateway pretty much throws away anything inside of a <form> (since they don't support the filling in and submitting of forms, I guess they consider hiding all of the text of the form to be "helpful" in preventing "confusion", *sigh*).
This is why surfing PerlMonks as AnonyMonk no longer generates an empty <form> that would be used for voting (and perhaps updating text) for a non-anonymous user. This change allows you to read the content of most PerlMonks nodes via Google's HTML-to-WML gateway.
blakem's version of CbLast includes a <form> that appears to have no purpose and that causes Google to render it in WML as little more than showing the time (no chatter is visible).
I'll ask blakem to remove the <form> and provide the source code to his script so perhaps Chady can switch over to it as well.
