The bot with user agent
Linguee Bot (http://www.linguee.com/bot; firstname.lastname@example.org) just downloaded approximately 2 GiB of stuff from a ViewVC-listing on one of my servers. Just because it’s stupid, but also because it’s so cheeky to ignore
robots.txt. So be it. I can indeed match the user agent string … from now on it receives HTTP status code 403.
