Hey guys:)

Where can i find A ready to go .htaccess file to block bad bots?
I'd like it to be able to simply copy and paste it without having to fix parts of it.

I have seen .htaccess files but they all have parts that need fixing.
And since the writers say you should be careful of using them because you can do damage instead of helping your site.

So when i see so many fixes over and over i don't know what to fix and writers tend to use alot of the terminology and i'm no expert in this area. So it's kind of hard to follow. I have not found one that is totally ready to go, i usually see them and they state to not forget to fix the pipes area or something and i do not know what they are talking about. I see some parts, and they show the fix, but the symbol is not on my keyboard. Or maybe it's something else.

Q.1. Well, do any of you know of a good .htaccess for blocking bad bots that can be copy pasted without having to modify it?

Q.2. Or can someone place a version of the .htaccess for blocking bad bots that can be simply copy pasted without having to fix it?

Well, thank you fellas:)
I hope you guys can help:)
I appreciate your time and your assistance.

Thanks again
