Possible improvement for search engines

​​​​​When I'm trying to find something on IMDb through Google, I often see links that start with "contribute.imdb.com/updates?update=" or "contribute.imdb.com/updates?edit=" indexed (from "Add a plot in your language" links or other Edit buttons I guess) which is bad when searching for something and shouldn't happen I think.​​​​​

​​​​​https://contribute.imdb.com/robots.txt​​​​​​​​​​ has ​​​​​​​​​​"Disallow: /contribution/" ​​​​for submission tracking links I think, maybe it can be updated to disallow "contribute.imdb.com/updates" links as well or via other methods (I see there is also a "noindex" thing for this purpose which can be used here maybe)?​​​​​
