    hi

    i used this in .htaccess to block bots if anyone finds it useful, the slimstat helped me figure out which ones were crawling and ignoring robots.txt

    SetEnvIfNoCase User-agent "Baidu" spammer=yes
    SetEnvIfNoCase User-agent "Yandex" spammer=yes
    SetEnvIfNoCase User-agent "ebookexplorer" spammer=yes
    SetEnvIfNoCase User-agent "liquidonline" spammer=yes
    
    <Limit GET PUT POST>
    
    order deny,allow
    
    deny from env=spammer
    </Limit>

    so far it has stopped the bots listed

    Thank you for this, very good point. I’m planning to add some ‘hooks’ to WP SlimStat, so that other plugin writers can automate this process.
