    Some of our sites have been crawled by the Indylib bot which has been spamming rubbish into URL parameters and generally being a bad bot. What is the best way to block requests from specific user agents?

    The user agent header for the indy lib bot is:
    Mozilla/3.0 (compatible; Indy Library)

    Use a rewrite rule testing ${USER_AGENT} should do the job.
