Opting out of AI scraping8/7/2023
Thanks to this post https://ruby.social/@olivierlacan/110846882340835196 and to pydanny I published my first ever robots.txt to opt out of AI scraping.
I think it is dramatically unfair that AI companies are monetizing content that is not theirs. It's my choice not to monetize. I write infrequently and selfishly, it's not important to me if anybody reads this.
But I chose not to feed for-profit companies with free labor. Obscurity is a choice too and a perk of being Another Mike on the internet.
