Automated buy bots tricked

This is a great feel good story but I doubt that it’ll last long if more people do it.

Ha, awesome. I wish I could think sideways.

Nice find.
Fighting bots with simple tricks is always nice to read.

Weird, the link you used is now giving a 404 Not Found error, but if you use the same path on the non-www subdomain, it loads fine.

Looks like it is a problem with the /en/, as both German and English articles load properly on the www subdomain as long as they do not use /en/ in the path:
