comment On which page(s) to add canonical?
If they're exactly the same, why does the second one even exist? It might be better to make the non-canonical URL a redirect to the correct one instead.

comment SEO-friendly masthead with a hidden <h1> and <h2>
In that case you're hiding it from everybody except browsers without CSS support. It'll probably have no effect on SEO because it's effectively not there :) The BS3 .sr-only approach will make it useful to both search engine bots and screen readers.

comment SEO-friendly masthead with a hidden <h1> and <h2>
What does class="hidden" do? If it's just display: none; I suspect the search bots will just completely ignore the content. Something like Bootstrap 3's .sr-only will make it invisible but available to text-only UAs (like screen readers and search bots).

comment Google is fetching body as title
Is your alt text really "mysite logo"? If so, consider that screenreaders users will hear "mysite logo" on every page. Change it to "mysite". Google might well stop duplicating it, too!

comment Microsoft update site has no SSL
That doesn't answer my question. What is it you are trying to achieve? Why can't you simply link to <a href="http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/">?

comment Microsoft update site has no SSL
What do you mean by "a link"? A simple <a href="https://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/"> or something more complex?

comment Unknown CSS font-family oddity with IE7-10 on Windows Vista, 7, 8
I'd be interested to know if you're setting a language on the page where you're seeing Batang, and if not, does it make a difference? (e.g. <html lang="en"> or in php header('Content-language: en');)

comment Why is honest cloaking for Ajax considered bad practice?
Your example of Cloaking (send a basic page that works to no-script UAs) doesn't sound very different to the way I think of Progressive Enhancement (send a basic page that works to all UAs, and load/run enhancement scripts where possible). It wastes a miniscule amount of bandwidth with script tags that'll be completely ignored by no-script UAs. Additionally, how about using the history APIs (diveintohtml5.info/history.html) where possible, falling back to hashbangs where it isn't?

comment SEO: show all content to Google for infinite scrolling
Do you really want google to index your search results page? If it can get to all the other content on the site by other means, what exactly would be the point?

comment Is some version of IE9 lowercasing URLs?
Do you have WebsiteDefender on your servers at all? I ask because googling that UA string brought this up: tomoconnor.eu/blogish/appearance-can-be-deceptive
