Blocking Empty User Agents (1 post)

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^$
    Doesn't work for many plugins, since are common sites that don't use a User Agent, including PayPal IPN and Google+

    Blocking blank user agent also interferes with some search engine (don't remember which) being able to read your robots.txt, so you don't get listed at all.

    If that is a problem for your site, simply delete that one line from the .htaccess
