    yo folks

    I have a lot referral spam and bad bots on my site. Some time ago I read an advice here to simply block all users who have javascript disabled because most bots do that but no normal users (in fact some users do it but they cant read my site then anyway therefore it would not hurt to block them.)

    I am afraid though that by doing so I would also block the google bot. I know that google bot can read js but I am not sure if it has it enabled all the time.

    If somebody has more information on how to execute that properly please let me know.

    Don't have a solution for you, however, why are you worried about the "bad bots"?
