#nobot should not even be necessary. No bots should ever follow or even interact with anyone unless explicitly requested by that person. I block any that do so.

But what's wrong with a bot following you? Why does it bother you?

@wolf480pl
There have been multiple occurrences of mass-follow bots being used for data harvesting and/or creating a searchable toot database against the wishes of the content creators. Many masto users would prefer not to be indexed by Google etc
