Oh, internet, it's 2018 and still . . ^this^ . . is necessary just so that some of us (most of us) can do some good . . whilst battling those with an entirely different definition of good ~"What's good for ME is GOOD FOR ME. F-U!" :(

Thanks for the continued good work, keyplyr et al.

This is just something we deal with as site owners. Don't forget that Most of Your Traffic is Not Human [webmasterworld.com]

And very few of those bots follow our directives and respect digital property rights.

I used to send complaints to larger server farms alerting them about the behavior of their bot-runner customers, and was successful in stopping a few of them. But the last couple years with all the cloud computing and cheap storage, it's become a futile effort.

The internet has become literally overrun with bots.
