Urban Dictionary and Google Sitelinks

A little while ago Google allowed some method of control over the sitelinks that are associated with a sites' Google snippet listing. Through the Sitelinks feature of Google Webmaster tools, webmasters are able to decide which sitelinks appear with their listing. However, I don't think this feature has been picked up by the guys over at the Urban Dictionary, as the snippet below shows:


 I can only imagine that the Goog has decided that this "c word" page is valuable to it's searchers and have thoughtfully provided a link directly to it, or perhaps the UD have intentially provided a link to one of their most important pages afterall.

    Can anyone tell me how to control the sitelinks. I know you can put them on and off with webmastertools. I tried to control them by putting noindex and noarchive in the meta tag, but no luck so far.

    It's not showing up now. The sitelinks are gone (using from Australia). May be something to do with the location because instead of <i>Urban Dictionary: Define Your World</i>, I get <i>Urban Dictionary: May 26: Earn Your Turn</i>.

    What's really amazing is that instead of sitelinks, it's showing a searchbox (in the search results) with a button to search Urban Dictionary. I've never seen that before!

    It’s a very good website.
    A variety of topics are mentioned over here.
    We can share over views.
