Cpantesters block MSN bot from accessing cpantesters site. It is said on blogs.perl.org that "Microsoft in their incompetent wisdom decided to unleash 20-30 bots every few seconds". Maybe it is, but closing access to a search engine is another side of incompetence, and I'd say hysterics and psychosis.
Aren't we wise enough to launch Ironman contest so that world search engines index blogging on Perl and not allow one of them to access the other Perl site? Restrictions should be smart; "mustdie" and blocking the whole range
Don't they think that by blocking MSN bot you block the site from indexing and later displaying in one of the search engines, thus by yourself and manually reduce the area where Perl-related stuff can be found?
P. S. And I can't comment on blogs.perl.org, as the site does not allow me either to register or to login.
