heya, i remember you posted something about robots.txt earlier -- that's mostly a convention with no guarantee anyone on the web will follow it. you can request x-bot not to crawl your site but they still can if they want to.

i'm sure you already know! but i just wanted to leave the note! openai seems to be ignoring it for example: https://www.businessinsider.com/openai-anthropic-ai-ignore-rule-scraping-web-contect-robotstxt

Yeah it is very unfortunate that they will not follow it. I know this doesn't apply to neocities, but for people that host their own sites I recently heard cloudflare released a feature to block AI bots.

Absolutely, all the robots file does is state that you do not consent - whether companies listen to that (often, they don't) is another matter. I think it's worth doing, but I didn't mean to create a false sense of security.

in light of all the crappy generative ai stuff that's coming out, allow me to direct you toward this wonderful post (https://mrgan.com/ai-email-from-a-friend) and (undoubtedly preach to the choir as I) say: TECHNOLOGY IS ONLY GOOD WHEN IT BRINGS US CLOSER TOGETHER

The problem I have with modern western salads is that they are mostly some sort of Brassica. There are so many other types of interesting edible leaves in this world, why do you choose to only eat variations of one boring leaf?

Your recent post about capturing tone and choosing interesting topics is all too relatable. For what it' s worth, though, I think your personality comes through well in your writing.

I love your writing! most recently read your essay on revision, which really spoke to me, and I'm enjoying slowly getting through your other stuff

also, I am so jealous of/into whatever you've done with your footnotes: still in the process of establishing my own format for longform writing but I need to get some capacity for foot/endnotes in

I was joking in the previous comment, but now I realise that I've been doing it wrong all along. This is a very useful tutorial.

Thanks. I like your writing too and I'm looking forward to going through your website. Though I'm a bit disappointed that your "Centring text" is not a guide on how to center text in css. I can never remember how to do that properly.
