Vanity is bad ok!

The site has been getting ganked by the google indexer recently, a big change, but i figured out why: about 500 dead alliances were still included in the queries to present the ranking (Seems to be the thing to do in 2008 - create a vanity alliance and then kill it off).

Needless to say, these are all archived for posterities sake, and the query runs a lot faster.
So next time you're thinking of blowing 1bn isk on an alliance, think of the 400bn down the drain for vanity alliances that people didn't keep up their payments on. You could AFK train for 6 months on that ISK.
