Tonight, I ran across Robb Knight’s Blocking Bots with Nginx, which fits well with two pieces I have already written about.

Check out my 🤖 Super Bot Fight 🥊 article, which develops a Django-friendly middleware for blocking AI UserAgents so they never get to your content.

My 🤖 On Robots.txt article shared more of my research on the robots.txt standard.

I forgot I wrote the middleware, so I rewrote it tonight before rediscovering it while looking for both articles to share. That was fun, so I’m not writing more tonight. 😬
