[ L ] How to block spambots


Since I started fighting back several days ago, I have been blocking an average of 700 hits a day from spambots, spybots, and other rude programs. (Keep in mind that this number is kept low because the robots are blocked from any access, and therefore have no links to follow.) Like fighting spam on the email world, fighting robots is a neverending battle with no winners, only casualties. You will never stop all abusive behavior from all automated robots and rude programs, but you can minimize their effects and reduce the abuse to acceptable levels.
